Building on our previous exploration of insurrectionary anarchism, the tenth episode of the Ex-Worker examines how these ideas apply to environmental struggles today. We share excerpts from a debate about “The Issues Are Not The Issue,” a critical discussion of tactics and strategy in eco-defense movements, and grapple with the limitations of campaign organizing, connections based on identity versus affinity, critiques of the green left, and staying involved in struggle for the long haul. We also take a look at Desert, an anarchist analysis of climate change and the possibilities for resistance in a world of ecological disaster, share updates from imprisoned grand jury resistors and hunger strikers, round up a ton of news from global uprisings, share new reading recommendations, and plenty more.
