Facing the Apocalypse – Arguments for Ecosocialism

Book launch with the author Alan Thornett

Wednesday 1 May, 7pm

The Hub
16-17 Turl Street, Oxford OX1 3DH
(off High and Cornmarket Streets)

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.

National Demonstration for Palestine

Exist! Resist! Return!

Assemble 12 Noon Portland Place, March to Whitehall

The Palestinian people need our solidarity more than ever, and are calling for global protests to protect their collective rights. As Israel continues to flout international law and violate human rights, there is a responsibility on the global community to hold it to account and push for an end to the oppression of the Palestinian people.

No new Nakba! –  End the Siege!  – Defend the Right of Return!

Organised by: Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Stop the War Coalition, Palestinian Forum in Britain, Friends of Al- Aqsa, Muslim Association of Britain.

Supported by: Unite the Union, PCS, UNISON, RMT, ASLEF, UCU, NEU, TSSA, Amos Trust, CND, ICAHDUK, Momentum.

Join us in London on Saturday 11 May, the beginning of Nakba Week, for a National Demonstration.

Hosted by Resistance Books
Thursday 16 May, 7pm

We are facing a multifaceted threat to life the planet. 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.

Alan Thornett engages directly with major debates such as the rising human population and carbon pricing that remain unresolved on the socialist left. His approach is to promote a transitional approach, distinct from both those that think capitalism will find a solution and those who think revolutionary propaganda is enough.

He argues that defending the planet against this crisis today requires broadest possible movement of those – the 99 per cent – who are victims of it.
