These Ecosocialism events are organised by a range of red/green organisations. These currently include the Alliance for Green Socialism, Green Left, Parti de Gauche, the PCS union, RS21, Socialist Resistance, Wigan Green Socialists and others.
These groups see an inevitable link between getting rid of capitalism and solving environmental problems such as global warming. It is not just that capitalism is a deeply unjust and unequal system. It is also a system that depends on endless growth and on destruction of the environment on which we depend.
The leading lights organising Ecosocialism 2014 are Wigan Borough Green Socialists, Green Left and Alliance for Green Socialism.
