The Solutions are Already Here Discussion
Our ecological crisis goes beyond just the question of climate and technology. It is rooted in colonialism and entangled with food security and healthcare; borders and migration; Indigenous sovereignty and knowledge; gentrification, housing rights, and questions of who owns the land; our relation to one another and to all other forms of life. The ecological crisis is also a social and political crisis. Rhizome House is hosting a presentation with Peter Gelderloos, the author of The Solutions Are Already Here: Strategies for Ecological Revolution from Below. We will unpack many of the false and misleading narratives around climate change that are designed to pacify us, and explore the connections between all the interrelated social issues we are facing. We are hoping this conversation will be a first step towards strengthening the connections between the organizing we are all doing, moving towards a vision and a practice of effective solidarity and the creation of real alternatives in the face of this unfolding disaster.
*Also a reminder to join our potluck on 1/31, the last Tuesday of every month, to eat some food and build community.*
