Climate Crisis and the State of Disarray

This talk will engage issues of land-based struggle and social ecology as informed by Black anarchist understandings of environmental racism and racial capitalist extraction and exploitation. We will discuss how the impending climate crisis misplaces responsibility onto those most greatly affected rather than those most directly responsible, but it nevertheless also presents us with a unique opportunity to organize people into more radical politics—radical praxis like the intercommunalism of the Black Panther Party—if we are proactive instead of reactive. Based on ideas in our recent book As Black as Resistance: Finding the Conditions for Liberation.
