Against Doom: A Climate Insurgency Manual (published by PM Press, 2017)
PM Press & The Labor Network for Sustainability
Before the election of Donald Trump, the world was already speeding toward climate catastrophe. Now President Trump has jammed his foot on the global warming accelerator. Is there any way for the rest of us to put on the brakes? Climate insurgency is a strategy for using people power to realize our common interest in protecting the climate. It uses mass, global, nonviolent action to challenge the legitimacy of public and corporate officials who are perpetrating climate destruction. A global climate insurgency has already begun. It has the potential to halt and roll back Trump’s fossil fuel agenda and the global thrust toward climate destruction. Join Jeremy Brecher, author of the new book, Against Doom: A Climate Insurgency Manual, along with longtime activists Cynthia Kaufman and Anneke Campbell for a discussion on how to put strategies into action—and how they can succeed. This is a workshop for anyone interested in halting global warming and restoring our climate—a how-to for climate insurgents. Join us!
