Ecosocialist International Founded!

Green Left supporters from the UK have participated in a conference in Paris that has established an Ecosocialist International. Derek Wall reports here.

This is a very encouraging development. There were worries that the Paris meeting might not bring forward concrete proposals, but this did not occur, instead an ambitious plan for linking together like-minded activists and building up an international movement is underway.

Ian Angus, editor of Climate and Capitalism who helped with the Paris conference is to speak at a meeting in London sponsored by Green Left and Socialist Resistance on Wednesday 10th October. Ian will be reporting back on the Paris conference at meetings in Canada (Toronto, Vancouver, Winnipeg and Ottawa) in November.

The conference had individuals and representatives from groups in the UK (GL, AGS, SR), France, Belgium, Australia, Canada, USA, Denmark, Greece, Brazil, Cyprus, Italy and Switzerland. Messages were received from groups and individuals in Nepal, China, Poland, Zimbabwe, Palestine and Germany.

We’re running an unbranded video campaign, highlighting the adverse effects of climate change on British wildlife, and would be interested in buying some advertising or advertorial space on your blog. Sorry- couldn’t see where to get in touch.

For more information, contact me at

Hi Stephanie,
Sorry but I don't do commercial advertising on this blog, but if the campaign is hosted somewhere I can link to, would be pleased to do so if it is environmentally and politically sound.
