Revolution Against Climate Catastrophe

Wednesday Jul 25, 7PM @ Red Emma’s

From Red Emmas:

Red Emmas is excited to welcome Institute for Anarchist Studies and AK Press author, Javier Sethness-Castro, to present on the newly released fourth title in the highly-acclaimed Anarchist Intervention Series: Imperiled Life: Revolution Against Climate Catastrophe. 

In Imperiled Life, Javier Sethness-Castro theorizes an exit from the potentially terminal consequences of capital-induced climate change. This proves to be both a collection of reflections on the phenomenon of catastrophe—climatological, political, social—as well as the possibilities of overcoming disaster.

Sethness-Castro presents the grim news from contemporary climatologists while providing a reconstructive vision inspired by anarchist intellectual traditions and promoting critical thought as a means of changing our historical trajectory.

Training Session For Activists


Counterpower, Discussion Of Real Change With Activist Tim Gee
Thursday, July 10th, 7pm
Red Emma’s
800 St. Paul St. Baltimore

Change can and does happen. But why is it that some campaigns succeed while others fail? Is it luck, or is there a common strategy unifying those that have achieved their aim, and what can we learn from the past? In Counterpower, activist Tim Gee seeks to get to the root of how change happens by taking an in-depth look at the strategies and tactics that have contributed to the success (or otherwise) of some of the most prominent movements for change from India’s Independence Movement to the Arab Spring. He concludes that any campaign is winnable in theory, but only if we are aware of our power.

About the Author: Tim Gee delivers training sessions for political activists. He studied Politics at Edinburgh University, where he was also active in the student movement. Tim has also contributed to several campaigning guides and manuals. This July, Tim is due to embark on a tour of the US to promote Counterpower and campaign for social change, after completing an extensive UK tour.
