About this Event

Facing the Apocalypse - Arguments for Ecosocialism

Meeting and discussion with the author Alan Thornett

Saturday 30 November, 12noon, Victoria Hotel, Leeds, LS1 3DL

We are facing a multifaceted threat to the planet. Crucial resources are running out. Pollution is choking the ecosystems.From a defence of the remarkable ecological content of classical Marxism – lost during the 20th century to the rise of productivism – the book is an appeal to the socialist left to take the ecological crisis far more seriously.

The author engages with major debates that are unresolved on the left. He promotes a transitional approach, distinct from those that think capitalism will find a solution and those who think revolutionary propaganda is enough. Alan Thornett argues that defending the planet today requires the broadest possible movement.
