Meetings In London And Manchester

In the run up to the Global Climate Change Day of Action on Saturday, the LSE Students' Union is running its' annual Climate Change Action Week. They have a meeting on the socialist approach to the challenge of Climate Change on Wednesday afternoon -

Can capitalism stop ecological meltdown? Can socialism?
What do socialists say about climate change?


1-3pm, Wednesday 5th December
Room S300 (3rd floor, St Clements House, Houghton Street, LSE)

Speakers: Derek Wall (Green Party male principal speaker and Green Left),
Clive Bradley (Workers' Liberty)

We will be discussing the relationship between capitalism, class
exploitation and ecology, whether socialists can develop an effective
programme to save the planet and what force can create an egalitarian,
democratic, sustainable society.

All welcome

Sponsored by LSE Green Party and London Workers' Liberty students
