Red is the New Green: Marx's Ecology

Wednesday, July 21, 2010 - 22:00 to Thursday, July 29, 2010 - 00:00

This is a two week workshop that is designed to offer, through the use of visual aids and open discussion, a clear, accessible new understanding of current environmental issues through the historical perspective of an often misunderstood thinker. Our investigation will show the hidden roots of ecological thinking that date from the dawn of Western thought.

The first workshop of the series is titled Dialectical Naturalism on July 21st from 6pm until 8pm and the second workshop of the series is titled Dead Matter's Domination on Wednesday July 28th from 6 pm until 8 pm.  Both workshops will be held at the Bloor Gladstone Library.

Facilitator: C.M. Whittall

Suggested Donation: $7 for each workshop

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
