Brian Tokar book tour: food in crisis, climate emergency, climate justice,
militarism, capitalism, movement strategy, much more, with Maggie Zhou.
Monday March 28, 7 pm, Lucy Parsons Center, 549 Columbus Ave, Boston.
Brian Tokar and Maggie Zhou of the activist network Climate SOS will discuss the
global climate crisis, its implications for worldwide struggles for justice, and
the emergence of the climate justice movement. Brian Tokar is a long-time
activist and author, and current director of the Institute for Social Ecology
based in Plainfield, Vermont. He is the author of the recently published books,
Toward Climate Justice: Perspectives on the Climate Crisis and Social Change
(http://www.akpress.org/2010/items/towardclimatejustice), and Agriculture and
Food in Crisis: Conflict, Resistance, and Renewal
(http://www.monthlyreview.org/books/agriculturefood.php). His other books
include The Green Alternative, and Earth for Sale. Maggie Zhou is a molecular
and computational biologist now turned full-time, volunteer climate and
environmental campaigner and amateur climate scientist. She is with Climate SOS
(a member of the international network Climate Justice Now!), Massachusetts
Coalition for Healthy Communities, and the US Green party. She has been working
on building the climate justice movement, exposing false climate solutions and
market fundamentalism, as well as exposing militarism and the current imperial
world order at the root of failure in climate policy and climate negotiations.
