“It is easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism.” —Ian Angus
We are living under an ecological crisis born and sustained by capitalist’s pursuit of profit over people and the planet. Thousands plan to descend onto the UN Climate Summit this September to stand in the way. There is a developing movement that is shining a spotlight on the forces that refuse to put the sustainability of our planet ahead of profitable production. But many questions remain unanswered:
What would it take to force the ruling elite to take the measures that would be required to protect our earth and the people on it?
What is the relationship between the ecological movement’s demands and an end to capitalism?
Is there an alternative we can live to see?
Despite the scale of what we face, we believe a world is possible in which we meet the needs of all people without consuming our planet in order to satisfy the needs of an exploitative system.
