The impacts of war, climate chaos, inequality, oppression and colonialism are felt by masses of people while the small ruling class get richer each day. This is how capitalism works. But people are resisting. Workers are organizing and striking. Indigenous Land Defenders are putting their lives and land on the line to stop the destruction. Thousands are marching to make the bosses pay for their crisis. We need to get rid of the capitalist system altogether. How do we achieve this? What are the strategies and tactics that can win a world of peace and equality?
