Hobart Forum with Ian Angus

Climate war and the billionaire class: Capitalism versus humanity in the fight to save the planet

This forum will address the "climate war" that has begun and the ecosocialist solutions needed to address it. More than ever, the line between rich and poor is a line between survival and death, as inequality and climate change combine to create new extremes of oppression. A handful of people live in obscene luxury, while billions are condemned to permanent poverty and hunger – and rich governments build fences, walls and concentration camps to keep the poor away. 
                                
Speaker Ian Angus is a long-time activist in socialist and environmental movements in Canada and internationally.

Greece eyewitness speaking tour with Green Left correspondent

Green Left Weekly's European correspondent and Socialist Alliance member Dick Nichols, usually based in Barcelona, was in Athens for the historic win. He is speaking across the country about SYRIZA's challenge to austerity and elite rule. Radical leftist party SYRIZA has swept to power in Greece promising to end austerity and threatening to spark an anti-austerity fight-back across Europe. Dick will be speaking this Sunday in Hobart - so don't miss out on this opportunity to learn about this historic victory.

Hobart Climate gathering at MONA

"On September 21, over 2,500 events were held around the world to call for climate action ahead of the UN Summit in New York. Hobart’s part in this global picture was a gathering of about 500 people at MONA (Museum of Old and New Art). Many arrived with a big bike convoy from the city. The crowd gathered near the museum’s entrance for a big group photo, with placards demanding urgent action on climate change. This was followed by two sides volleying the earth over MONA’s tennis court net – a battle between fossil fuel and renewable energy – and speakers including Susan Austin from Climate Action Hobart."
