The Forum's goal is to promote exchange of information, discussion, and debate among ecosocialists and other activists who share our belief that capitalism is driving climate change and that a radical international grassroots movement can stop it.

Frieda's Extinction Rebellion talk power point

#2
We need all the allies we can get, and the Extinction Rebellion folks make a really strong case for the seriousness of the crisis and the need for drastic measures. But they are explicitly apolitical, seemingly assuming that civil disobedience alone will win the fight. To challenge the entire political/economic system, which we as ecosocialists know is to blame, we need political power. In my view, our focus should be on how to get that.
