  Left Forum 2013—Mobilizing for Ecological\Economic Transformation

*W*e need to mobilize now! The planet and humankind are in peril. The 
climate is warming, glaciers are melting, seas are rising, droughts are 
spreading and species are going extinct, all caused by unsustainable 
development and overconsumption of every resource on the planet. 
Meanwhile the ongoing economic crisis the worst since the Great 
Depression has devastated working people around the world with 
astronomical rates of unemployment, falling incomes and  brutal 
austerity measures. Everywhere, the people least responsible for these 
interrelated crises are bearing their brunt, in particular people in 
developing countries, women who are the bulk of ecological refugees, and 
people of color. Bangladesh with its floods and factory fires is a 
tragic case in point. These twin crises reveal the destructive – indeed 
eco-suicidal - nature of capitalism’s inherent drive to growth, where 
everything in nature has a price, and nothing has a value, including 
human life.
*A*t the same time, new forms of anti-capitalist and horizontal 
democratic resistance are emerging everywhere. There is reason to hope, 
as the basic question of who should own the Earth is coming to the fore. 
Come to this year’s Left Forum to explore the environmental and 
movement-building imperatives that make another world not only possible 
but necessary.
