Whether against pipelines and oil trains, coal exports, deforestation, or nuclear waste, activists here and around the world are fighting for the environment and the safety of their communities. But what relationship do these projects have to global imperial competition? And how can we use an understanding of this relationship to better fight for social and environmental justice here and abroad? Join the International Socialist Organization for a presentation and discussion on the role of global capitalism in environmental catastrophe and what strategies we can use to stop it.
