AGAINST CAPITALISM
FOR ECOSOCIALISM



JOIN OUR DISCUSSION


Climate change, disease, bad jobs, poverty... capitalism is causing terrible ecological, health and other social crises -- and they're getting worse. We believe a better world is possible.

Join us for a discussion of ecosocialism as an alternative next Thursday, February 11th 7:00pm CT over Zoom.

Before the discussion, please listen to episode 3 of Solidarity Winnipeg's podcast:
Why Ecosocialism is Necessary, Possible and Worth Fighting For:
