London, N7 8EE United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Fascism is on the rise all around the world. At the same time, the climate crisis is an imminent danger to the continued survival of our ecosystems. This has brought back an old enemy that combines these two threats: ecofascism. Contrary to the popular belief, ecofascism has existed for a long time, with its origins going almost as far back as the ecological movement itself. In this talk we'll learn the historical precedents of ecofascism, its ideological underpins and we'll…

Seedbombing workshop

27 February @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Grass, 9 Eden Grove
London, N7 8EE United Kingdom

British biodiversity is in crisis. Industrial farming practices, particularly the use of pesticides and monocultures, are destroying diverse natural habitats for profit, while haphazard urban expansion is continuously fragmenting already delicate ecosystems. Without processes such as pollination and natural pest control, human civilization will collapse. To combat the imminent threat to our environment we will be carrying out a SEEDBOMBING workshop and campaign, so that we can transform London’s dead concrete landscape into something beautiful and biologically diverse. Join us…

Green London, Harrow and Edgware Roads
London, W2 1XJ United Kingdom

What can we learn from this perspective for our organising here? What kind of world we’re trying to build, and how we get there? How can we support and stand in solidarity as the revolution comes under attack? Location: GRASS,…

The Next Revolution Reading Group was founded at the #nottheanarchistbookfair Anarchist Festival in 2019.

This month they are holding their reading group as part of the Week of Action. Please come…

Global Britain’s real climate changers: Big Oil and Big Mining must be taken down with the London Mining Network

1 March @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Grass, 9 Eden Grove
London, N7 8EE United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Greta Thunberg was right to insist at Davos that the problem actor to be confronted is the fossil fuel industry. Rather than just the 1% usually cited, the UK is actually responsible for around 7-8% of global warming emissions. The principal culprits are the big oil and mining companies that operate across the entire planet, returning profits here. The Labour Party says little more than outgoing Bank of England governor Mark Carney, to get corporations to report on their GHG…
