Speaker: Sarah Ensor – UK climate justice activist and socialist, member of the Public and Commercial Services (PCS) Union, author of "Capitalism and the biodiversity crisis", in System Change not Climate Change (Bookmarks, 2019)

After the recent COP 15 meetings on biodiversity in Montreal, there is a lot of discussion about whether or not the decisions made there meaningfully address the crisis accelerating biodiversity crisis. We are living through the highest rate of species extinction since the dinosaurs were killed 65 million years ago. What links the biodiversity crisis to industrial meat production, deforestation, over-fishing, rising temperatures and extreme weather events is capitalism's drive for profit. Join this discussion on the roots of the ecological crisis and the prospects for a revolutionary transformation of society to address it.
