Ecosocialist Horizons Hour – Leave the Oil in the Soil!

November 26, 2013

NEW YORK, November 24, 2013

This week the Ecosocialist Horizons Hour (EHH) teams up with renowned Ecuadorian activist Ivonne Yanez of Acción Ecológica, to explore a struggle for nothing less than human survival and a new world: the battle to the save the Yasuni in the Amazon from oil extraction and exploitation.

Ivonne Yanez is one of the leading activists in this battle, working with Acción Ecológica, who are organizing a popular referendum to defeat President Correa’s plan to drill the biodiverse Yasuni. Their question is a fundamental one if we hope to have a livable planet for future generations: can we leave the oil in the soil?

EHH is your frontline report on the global ecological crisis and the struggle for a livable world. EHH is the only source connecting the dots between Empire, Capitalism, Ecological Collapse, and the movements to rebuild humanity’s severed connection with the natural world.

EHH is not meant for the faint of heart. Join us with courage, spirit, and the humor that is needed to answer the biggest challenge humanity has ever faced.
