Mikaela Loach & Jessica Gaitan Johannesson
Doors at 6.45pm, come early to discover climate groups & activists operating across Scotland (see below!). Discussion will begin at 7.30pm.
For too long, representations of climate action in the mainstream media have been white-washed, green-washed and diluted to be made compatible with capitalism.
We are living in an economic system which pursues profit above all else; harmful, oppressive systems that heavily contribute to the climate crisis, and environmental consequences that have been toned down to the masses. Tackling the climate crisis requires us to visit the roots of poverty, capitalist exploitation, police brutality and legal injustice. Climate justice offers the real possibility of huge leaps towards racial equality and collective liberation as it aims to dismantle the very foundations of these issues. In her debut book, campaigner Mikaela Loach offers a fresh and radical perspective for real climate action that could drastically change the world as we know it for the benefit of us all.
Written with candour and hope, It's Not That Radical will galvanise readers across generations to take action, offering an accessible and transformative appraisal of our circumstances to help mobilise a majority for the future of our planet.
Practical and urgent - this is a clarion call for transformation from the front lines of the fight for people and planet. I have no doubt It's Not That Radical will become an indispensable toolkit for a new generation of activists - Naomi Klein
Come and celebrate with us - not just this phenomenal new book, but the possibilities it creates and the movement it is part of.
