El anarquismo y el movimiento ambiental

Date:

El problema principal con cualquier debate sobre el "Movimiento Verde" es que no existe como un solo cuerpo de ideas. En lugar de eso tanto individuos como organizaciones sostienen un rango de posiciones desde el anarquismo a través del espectro político hasta las ideas influenciadas por el fascismo. Cualquier término, ambientalismo, ecologismo, etc son definiciones muy vagas de unos amplios cuerpos de ideas y prácticas, probablemente incluso más amplios y más vagos que el socialismo. Por eso no deberíamos crear una falsa elección entre anarquismo y ecologismo sino más bien deberíamos preguntarnos qué tipo de teoría y acción ambiental deberíamos favorecer los anarquistas por un lado y por el otro explicar por qué cualquier ecologista también debería ser un anarquista de lucha de clases.

Anarchism and the Environmental Movement

Date:

The major problem with any discussion of the 'Green Movement' is that it does not exist as a single body of ideas. Instead both individuals and organisations hold a range of positions from anarchism right across the political spectrum to ideas influenced by fascism. Any of the terms, environmentalist, ecologist etc are very vague definitions of a wide bodies of idea and practise, probably even wider and vaguer then socialism. Therefore we should not create a false choice between anarchism and environmentalism but rather ask what sort of environmental theory and action should anarchists favour on the one hand and on the other explain why any environmentalist should also be a class struggle anarchist

The successful struggle against Nuclear Power at Carnsore Point in Co. Wexford, Ireland

Date:

Britain, France, Germany, the US, and a host of other countries the last 25 years have seen very large movements seeking to close down nuclear power stations. Ireland hasn't. We didn't need to. A big victory was won here when we stopped the then Fianna Fail government going ahead with their plans to build not one, but four, nuclear power stations at Carnsore Point in Co. Wexford in the late 1970s.

Offsetting Democracy

Date:

Carbon trading and offsets distract attention from the wider, systemic changes and collective political action that needs to be taken in the transition to a low-carbon economy. Promoting more effective and empowering approaches to climate change involves moving away from the blinkered reductionism of free-market dogma, the false-economy of supposed quick fixes, the short-term self interest of big business.
