"Workers & The World Unite" is a fantastic slogan for a new radical politics rooted in the limits of what bodies and planet can take - and what both need to thrive.

Sending love Sandra. You and your colleagues deserved so much better.

Exactly one year ago, the last thing I did in person, was go on @democracynow  to talk about the failure of progressives to unite behind a transformational candidate. I just rewatched it, holds up... Hard day.

It's an honour to be among so many of my ecological heroes in this @PenguinClassics  library of short books that speak to the short time we have left to win a safe future for all. Hot Money will be published August 26th!

Such a privilege to be represented by this visionary union - #Rutgers  friends tune in!

That's so nice to hear, thank you!

I'm so sorry you went through that. And you are so right: #Vaccines4All 

Please join me next Tuesday for the Canadian launch event of #howtochangeeverything . Visit an independent book retailer online or IRL!

It's not too late for everyone to come to their goddamned senses and support Bernie Sanders for President. A true mensch who has spent his entire life fighting for the precise policies that would be saving lives right now on a truly staggering scale. Not too late.

No Joe, there is no "middle ground" on climate breakdown - there is bold, transformative action or there is sinking ground, burning ground and churning ground. "Presidential hopeful Biden looking for ‘middle ground’ climate policy"

Don't talk about guns after a massacre. Or climate change after storms. Or austerity after firetrap buildings burn. Talk when no one listens

This is absolutely unreal. Last time: no strings attached bail out money. This time: the public doesn't even get to know which multinational, multibillion dollar companies got its money. Looting with masks on.

Reality keeps endorsing Bernie Sanders. Pass it on.

As we watch the Amazon burn, remember: @jairbolsonaro 's presidency is itself a crime scene. He is only in power because of a series of illegal coups - first against Dilma, then Lula, who would have easily defeated Bolsonaro at the polls. Before Brazil burned, it was stolen.

People claim Trump said not one word about climate change but that's false. He celebrated the US being the world's "No. 1" oil and gas producer. And the house cheered - they cheered for the knowing destabilization of the planet. Don't call them deniers, they are arsonists.

Protesting lethal police violence and impunity during a pandemic isn't irresponsible. It's brave. Indiscriminate firing of chemical weapons designed to make mucous membranes freak out during a pandemic that is spread through aerosolized droplets of mucus? That's bio warfare.
