Revolution or climate catastrophe

19 September at 6:00 pm8:00 pm

Every day brings new climate calamities. Beyond these looms the risk of cascading ‘tipping points’ and runaway warming. Millions suffer the impact of extractive industries, pollution and climate breakdown, while biodiversity is declining.

The ecological catastrophe is inseparable from the capitalist system; from its border regimes, from imperialist wars, from the relentless drive for profit. The problem facing us is political, not simply technological.

The change we need is revolutionary. But what sort of revolution? Could there be a revolution in Britain? Wouldn’t it need to be global? Is human nature a barrier? Would it mean violence? Is there time?

Come and join the discussion, introduced by Ian Allinson, rs21 national organiser.

Room 1.5, University of Manchester Students Union
