Burnt: Fighting for Climate Justice, with Chris Saltmarsh [online event]
Wednesday October 6, 2021 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Saving the world is not enough; we must build a better one in the process.
We are delighted to welcome Chris Saltmarsh to virtual Housmans to discuss Burnt: Fighting for Climate Justice, a new addition to the brilliant Outspoken series by radical publishers Pluto Press.
Time is up. The climate crisis is no longer a future to be feared, but a devastating reality.
In this discussion, Chris will explore how we’ve arrived at this moment and argue that the profoundly political nature of the environmental crisis has been relentlessly downplayed. He will also analyse the failures of NGOs, the limitations of Extinction Rebellion and Youth Strikes, the role of trade unions, and the possibilities of a Green New Deal.
Real change in our lifetime means taking power into our own hands.
Chris Saltmarsh is co-founder of Labour for a Green New Deal. He has written for a wide range of media including Novara Media, Tribune, Jacobin, the Ecologist, openDemocracy, Vice and New Internationalist.
