As the world’s scientists sound the alarm that our economy is on a collision course with nature, politicians of both major parties double down on investments in coal exports, the XL Keystone oil pipeline and expanded offshore oil drilling, to name a few.

Capitalism is on a collision course with humanity and the planet. The recent devastation left by Hurricane Sandy has given a glimpse of what a warmer planet has in store for the environment and humanity.
 
A new generation of activists have sprung into action to confront the corporate polluters and their political cronies. Now, more than ever, it is necessary that we come together and build the strongest possible fight back against the destructive rule of the 1%.
 
Join the Seattle International Socialist Organization for a discussion of what can be done and how activists in the Seattle area can fight together to stop the destruction of our environment.
 
The new Bellingham coal export terminal and resulting coal trains are the latest evidence that the capitalist system would rather the
planet burn than do anything to address Climate Change.
