Climate Change, like overpopulation and “Peak Oil” is the latest in a long line of socialist propaganda programmes.
Socialist Worker, led by the Lenin of Mangere Bridge, Grant Morgan, controls ClimAction, the bunch of idiots who closed down Queen St to save the planet last year and the Resident’s Action Movement (RAM) which is trying to drive cars out of Auckland.
Socialist Worker is allied with other Trotskyists around the world, including the Australian (which has had close ties to NZ’s Green Party) and the British .
All are busily promoting the Climate Change message in unison.
Check out this post from Indymedia on Socialist Worker’s latest edition of their flagship journal “Unity”
How many times does the word “socialist” appear in this post?
This issue of UNITY is a groundbreaker for all New Zealand activists – not just full-on ecologists, but also unionists, social justice campaigners, community activists, etc.
In addition to outlining the latest science on climate change, it also looks in detail at overseas and local solutions to global warming, and how these integrate into a socialist perspective. There is a special section on NZ-specific initiatives, like ClimAction’s recent street carnival and Al Gore “call out”, and RAM’s campaign against Carmageddon.
The journal features many respected overseas writers, like English ecologist George Monbiot, US socialist theorist Michael Parenti, US Marxist ecologist John Bellamy Foster, New Scientist investigative journalist Fred Pearce and British science analyst Paul McGarr, as well as a bevy of New Zealand writers.
Highlighted in UNITY are important elements in an all-rounded understanding of climate change, like Marx’s concept of the metabolic rift, the radical Global South concept of ecological debt, and why Helen Clark is a methane denier.
This issue is not to be missed by anyone who wants to seriously engage with the most pressing danger to humanity and other species on the planet.
