the crisis which could make all the others irrelevant

Yes, class and economic justice are central but the reality of climate change, if unaddressed, makes them irrelevant. At the same time, one cannot separate class from environmental issues. The only thing standing in the way of the survival of civilization much less life on earth is capitalism. The capitalist system has outlived its time and has become a juggernaut of global destruction.

We changed the conversation over the last two years bringing class, the reality of economic disparity, and the connection of wealth and power. Now it is vital that we connect the dots on the environment and take it to the streets.

We need to be doing everything we can to shut this deadly system down and rebuild it in an ecologically sustainable way and that requires moving beyond capitalism. We must replace it with eco-socialist systems. We have no choice. Failure to do so will result in our extinction. The world belongs to all of us. It's time to take it back from the insanity of profiteers.
