Event description

Description

Speaker: Derek Wall

Climate change and other ecological problems threaten human society, yet with the rise of right wing or even fascist leaders like Jair Bolsonaro, the new Brazilian President, there is a fear that rather than reformism, policies to accelerate environmental destruction will be promoted. Derek Wall will discuss green trade unionism, the red-green labour project, the extinction rebellion movement and other projects aimed at challenging the apparent rush to destruction.

Derek Wall is a former Principal Speaker and International Coordinator of the Green Party. A leading ecosocialist, he argues that environmental problems can only be overcome by challenging capitalism He has written 13 books on green and ecosocialist politics, the most recent is Hugo Blanco: A Revolutionary for Life published by Merlin Press. He also teaches political economy at Goldsmiths College, University of London.
