Far to the left of the NDP, far greener than the Greens

What does it mean to be an ecosocialist? We think it means understanding that the rising concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a few, at the expense of the many, is hurting many people now, while it also fuels the climate catastrophe that is driving us towards extinction.

Climate Crisis Summit Iowa Nov. 2019

"We've never seen something like this in U.S. history. In 2020, Green New Deal voters could determine who wins the Iowa caucuses, and from there the presidency."

Author and environmentalist Naomi Klein, U.S. Youth Climate Strike co-founder Isra Hirsi, and Sunrise Movement leader Zina Precht-Rodriguez are among those slated to join Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in Iowa on Saturday for a "Climate Crisis Summit" focused on the urgent need for a Green New Deal.

The children, who rallied in their tens of thousands on Canadian streets two weeks ago, want our current federal election to produce a government with a climate justice plan that will give us a more equitable society and strongly support global efforts to save our civilization and maybe our species. It is somewhat mind-boggling that not one of the four main parties contesting the election has put forward such a plan.

The world economy is characterized by major economic inequalities and by a production system that has already exceeded the limits of what is globally sustainable.

British Labour Party conference, 2019


It shouldn’t surprise many of us to learn that the recent Labour Party conference was nothing remotely like the press and media reports. For them, it was a disaster: rival factions were tearing the party to pieces over Brexit and anti-semitism, and Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership was finished. This was not the conference I attended, as delegate from my constituency party.

This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be standing here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to me for hope? How dare you!

You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words. And yet I’m one of the lucky ones. People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing.

Election offers only partial solutions

Roll Up Your Sleeves,

For the Green New Deal

   Our federal election should let us choose a climate justice plan to remedy global climate disruption and growing economic inequality. But, at best, the major parties offer only extremely partial solutions.
