MARXISM AND ECOLOGY

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2014

6:30-8:30 PM

Westside Peace Center

3916 Sepulveda Blvd., near Venice Blvd. (free parking in rear)

Suite 101-102, press #22 at door to get into building

Culver City (LA area)

 

SPEAKERS:

Kevin Anderson, author of Marx at the Margins

Cristina A., youth activist and participant in NY climate march

Lisa Lubow, historian and activist

At an objective level, the ecological crisis has reached new heights of urgency, while at a subjective level, a massive movement against climate change and fossil fuels has formed, as seen most recently in the 400,000+ march in New York.  Within this movement, including in LA, a strong “system change” tendency, which puts the question of capitalism itself on the agenda, has emerged.  The speakers will respond to this new situation by considering Marxism and ecology both in theory and in practice.

Marx Memorial Library

Spring 2009 Lecture Series

 

Marx and the Environment

 

 

9th February 09: Limits to Growth in the Economy

 

David Leal will consider the consequences of world-wide capitalist collective labour – immensely productive but immensely energy consuming – and ask whether we are still confident that technological advances are making socialism and abundance possible.

 

 

23rd February 09: Marxism and Ecology

 

David McLellan will discuss whether Marxism and ecology are incompatible or whether, on the contrary, Marxism can contribute to solving the most important crisis facing our world.

 

 

9th March 09: China: Facing the Green Challenge

 

Jenny Clegg will discuss the challenges facing China as it sets out to achieve a greener development – challenges both at the local levels and in the international context where it finds itself engaged in a trial of strength with the US over the renewal of the Kyoto Protocol.

 

 

23rd March 09: Marx on Nature and Human Nature

 

Lawrence Wilde starts from the point that the young Marx considered himself to be both a humanist and a naturalist – and these positions are hugely relevant to the dilemmas facing us under late capitalism.
