“Environmentalism without class struggle is just gardening,” Brazilian trade unionist and ecologist Chico Mendes once famously said. With a climate crisis upon us, what are the paths forward that do not just exacerbate global inequalities? And for countries like Venezuela, heavily reliant on resource extraction, what is to be done?

These are some of the (tough) questions tackled in our latest podcast episode. Host José Luis Granados Ceja is joined by fellow VA member Cira Pascual Marquina and by Venezuelan researcher and activist Liliana Buitrago to discuss anti-capitalist strategies against climate change, both at a macro and grassroots level.
