Corporate Destruction of the Environment and the Socialist Alternative

Thursday, 04 June 2009
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Organizer: Socialist Alternative

Organizer Email:

It is now clear that the capitalist system is destroying the global economy. But what about the damage it is doing to our global ecology? Media, politicians, and even corporate spokespeople talk about “cap and trade” plans for carbon emissions, “buying green,” and other market based solutions. Yet Sir Nicholas Stern, a former Chief Economist of the World Bank, has described climate change as “the greatest market failure the world has seen.” Socialists propose that we confront this ecological crisis and start looking beyond the market for answers. Come find out why.

Socialist Alternative is a national organization fighting in our workplaces, communities, and campuses against the exploitation and injustices people face every day. We are union activists, people of color, students, and immigrants fighting for workers’ rights and militant, democratic unions, speaking out against racism, organizing against war and oppression, demanding papers for all undocumented workers, and combating sexism and homophobia — women and men working towards a more just world.
