Joel Kovel speak on Agent of Struggle and Direct Action
At FORUM: RadioActivity! – Creating Everyday Revolution After Fukushima
Sunday October 7th, 2012
16 Beaver, NYC

Joel Kovel remembers Hiroshima because he (9 years old at the time) was at summer camp that day, and the entire camp broke out in rapturous cheers to celebrate the greatness of the USA. A terrible moment, which he is still trying to come to terms with. Later on he became an anti-nuclear activist and, while working with the War Resisters League, played some role in planning the great anti-nuclear rallies of 1982. Following on that experience he wrote Against the State of Nuclear Terror, which was published in 1984 by South End Press. Recently, the primary focus of his work has been the development of Ecosocialism (see ecosocialisthorizons.com). The central idea is to regard the ecological crisis within a comprehensive anti-capitalist perspective. This meeting gives an opportunity to extend that analysis to the crisis posed by nuclear power and weaponry.
