Link to audio/video of this townhall

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the nature of the capitalist system for all to see. It has revealed the vulnerability of the poorest people in society. It has shown clearly who is essential to our health and well being, and who is not. As the pandemic impacts societies across the globe, it gives us a glimpse of what massive climate disruption could also bring. The choice in front of us is clear – we have to organize our forces to save ourselves and life on our planet.

Join us for a discussion with Mike Davis, activist, professor and author of many books and articles about the impact of capitalism on the lives of working people and on the planet. Link to a recent article by MIke Davis on the pandemic: Reopening the Economy Will Send Us to Hell.

As always, you will have an opportunity to ask questions and share your experiences from your workplace and community.
