Resistance Is Not Enough: Imminent Climate Catastrophe Compels a Replacement Strategy

Room: 
1.65
Timeslot: 
SATURDAY June 3rd Session 2: 12:00pm - 1:50pm
Abstract: 
We will offer theoretical and practical arguments that resistance, i.e. reactive, ameliorative acts and goals, are not enough in this era of imminent climate catastrophe. We need to develop concrete plans for how a Marx-inspired struggle for a just and sustainable postcapitalist global society will proceed. Current struggles will take on a larger meaning when encompassed by an overarching postcapitalist replacement strategy.
