Climate war and the billionaire class: Capitalism versus humanity in the fight to save the planet
This forum will address the "climate war" that has begun and the ecosocialist solutions needed to address it. More than ever, the line between rich and poor is a line between survival and death, as inequality and climate change combine to create new extremes of oppression. A handful of people live in obscene luxury, while billions are condemned to permanent poverty and hunger – and rich governments build fences, walls and concentration camps to keep the poor away.
Speaker Ian Angus is a long-time activist in socialist and environmental movements in Canada and internationally.
