This event has been postponed due to Hurricane Sandy. New date is TBD.
The "Summer of Solidarity" saw a rise in ecological activism as well as a conscious acknowledgement of the interconnectivity of localized struggles. Whether we are occupying a mountaintop removal site in West Virginia or marching against fracking in South Africa there is a rising sense that all our grievances are connected through the systemic roots of the ecological crisis. We live in a social-economic climate that values profits over planet and people, that is poisoning the air we breathe, the water we drink, the soil we depend on and altering our actual climate in ways that threaten to make our planet uninhabitable.
An October 30th panel will feature veterans of a variety of environmental resistance movements, both local and national, followed by a public discussion. We will focus on the interconnection between issues of labor, race and ecology, with the aim of building a broader theoretical framework to understand the age we live in and make us sharper activists.
