How does the Coronavirus relate to the climate crisis and the structure of our society? Bookchin’s works provide a framework we can use to analyse how state-capitalism and the ‘legacy of domination’ create the conditions for a global pandemic, and our inability to properly respond. Join GAF for a discussion on dialectical naturalism, social ecology, and the domination of nature in the context of the Covid-19 crisis.

The only Justice is carried out by the people, let’s not wait for an inquiry that does fuck all.

Yesterday the so-called progressive government of Spain used the state of emergency to evict the occupied social centre of La Ingobernable in Madrid amid the pandemic. Never forget that be it left-wing or right-wing, all governments evict people. Solidarity

30 more food boxes organised and delivered by the lovely folks in GRASS with Food4All and the Holloway mutual aid network to a network of people who need them.
Mutual aid forever!

Thanks for coming along everyone, we look forward to our next reading group session!

Here's the call script for our phone zap:

“Hello KKR, I am calling to demand you respect Indigenous rights and the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs, and drop the risky Coastal GasLink pipeline from your portfolio immediately. It would lock us into decades of increased fracked gas. It also disregards the lack of consent by Wet’suwet’en community and negative impacts on the climate, air, water, and Indigenous women who face man camps being built along the route. Lastly, ongoing construction and lack of social distancing is putting the Wet'suwet'en community at greater risk of contracting COVID-19.”

You can call their UK offices at +44 20 7839 9800 and their US offices at 1-888-593-5407

You can also email them using this form actionnetwork.org/letters/mess
and tweet at them @KKR_Co@twitter.com

Doing anything tomorrow for Earth Day (April 23rd)? Join the communications blockade and rise up for the Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs!

The Coastal GasLink pipeline threatens Wet’suwet’en land, water, air, and people. Yet, over the past five years, TC Energy (formally Trans Canada) has tried to build the Coastal GasLink pipeline on Wet'suwet'en land, defiantly ignoring the hereditary chiefs' rights and title.

While the COVID-19 pandemic may keep us from gathering in the streets, it cannot stop the movement of defiant and uncompromising support. As the world turns its attention to Earth Day, let's seize the moment and show up for the Wet’suwet’en people.

Let's flood KKR with calls, emails and messages and tell them to respect indigenous rights!

Questions:
1 - Why is disaster capitalism so beneficial for the accumulation of capital? What other examples of ‘shocks’ and responses do you know of?

2 - What are the possible benefits of state-led programmes like UBI, GND, new Marshall Plan for capitalism today?

3 - How does the current Covid-19 situation highlight the flaws of our economic system? What are possible state responses you are worried about?

4 - What are the possible impacts of these different options on environmental and ecological systems?

5 - Can you see any spaces opening up for revolutionary action or progress on these various paths? What role could we play?

The first GAF online reading/discussion group is happening on Thursday. It's open to all! As it's our first attempt it could be a complete success or a complete failure, so you should at least come along to watch that!

There are readings and videos but these are NOT REQUIRED, they're there to help, but the discussion we'll be about the following questions rather than the texts specifically.

The texts can be found at the bottom of this page: greenanticapitalist.org/event/
