Reading group #8 Ecology

Our next reading group will be on Ecology on the 18th December at Freedom Bookshop, 7pm.

We will be reading the following texts on capitalism and ecology, including the Anarchist Federation’s new pamphlet Capitalism is Killing the Earth: an Anarchist Guide to Ecology.
The texts are:
Capitalism is Killing the Earth: an Anarchist Guide to Ecology http://afed.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Anarchist_Federation_Ecology_pamphlet_2018_Capitalism_is_Killing_the_Earth.pdf
20 Thesis against Green Capitalism: https://theanarchistlibrary.org/library/tadzio-muller-and-alexis-passadakis-20-theses-against-green-capitalism
Green Syndicalism: https://theanarchistlibrary.org/library/jeff-shantz-green-syndicalism
The Ecological Challenge: Three Revolutions are Necessary: https://theanarchistlibrary.org/library/alternative-libertaire-the-ecological-challenge-three-revolutions-are-necessary

Questions to consider in the reading:

  1. What does anarchism offer beyond general ecological thought?
  2. Will green capitalism work? If, not how do we articulate this?
  3. How might anarchist approaches be better and what examples do we have?
  4. Can we continue with our present standard of living in MEDCs?
