Devastating Climate Change – Socialist Feminist Solutions to Save Mother Earth

September 20, 2020 @ 1:00 pm PDT
Online (SF) San Francisco, CA United States

The wildfires devouring homes and making the air unbreathable result from the climate crisis created by capitalism’s drive for profit. Big oil knew decades ago that carbon dioxide buildup would cause global warming and change weather patterns to cause devastation by drought, fires, storms and flooding. California’s yearly infernos are a consequence.  Even the COVID pandemic can be traced to the planet’s rising temperatures.   To save the Earth, conservation and individual solutions are not enough.  Hear a Marxist feminist…

What kind of unity do oppressed and working people need today? Certainly not the Democrats’ version of bi-partisanship that will cause more repression and misery for the 99% while the 1% add billions to their bloated portfolios. The united front is a movement tactic in which political groups and activists collaborate against a common enemy or for any agreed objective, even if they are politically different in other ways. United fronts are a very effective method of advancing the growth,…
