Revolution in the Virocene: Near (or Nearing) the End of Time

Sat, October 9 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
$7.00 – $11.00

And A People’s Green New Deal (Pluto), by Max Ajl, engages critically with various Green New Deal proposals and sketches out a radical alternative committed to degrowth, anti-imperialism and agro-ecology.
