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

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.
