Anarchist dinner (tasty Mediterranean meze) from 19:00, than book presentation and discussion with Xander Dunlap
‘This System is Killing Us’ is an insider look at the catastrophic effects that energy infrastructure and mining are having on communities, their land and our planet. Xander Dunlap spent a decade living and working with Indigenous activists and land defenders across the world to uncover evidence of the repression people have faced in the wake of untamed capitalist growth. From Zapotec and Ikoot people struggling against wind energy projects in Oaxaca, Mexico to the violence of the Hambach mine in the German Rhineland, Dunlap presents the truth that lies behind the green re-branding of capitalism that social movements in the Global North have been slow to challenge.
Xander Dunlap is a postdoctoral research fellow at Boston University, USA, and a visitingresearch fellow in the Global Development Studies Department, University of Helsinki, Finland. Their work has critically examined police-military transformations, marketbased conservation, wind energy development and extractive projects more generally inLatin America, Europe and the United States. They have written numerous books, most recently Enforcing Ecocide: Power, Policing and Planetary Militarization.
