In early November, so-called leaders from around the world will gather in Glasgow… to do precious little to prevent the worldwide calamity of climate chaos. They will no doubt claim their hands are tied by the invisible handcuffs of the market, which insists that the wealth of the privileged must come before the needs of the earth.In the streets outside the convention, you will find Isabelle Fremeaux and Jay Jordan of the Laboratory for the Insurrectionary Imagination: veteran social movement coordinators, educators and strategists and co-authors of the newly published We Are ‘Nature’ Defending Itself: Entangling Art, Activism and Autonomous Zones.
In that book they detail their exodus from capitalist complicity through the struggle for the ZAD: a fierce autonomous zone in Western France that, for forty years, has been a beacon for the radical imagination.
One part revolutionary memoire, one part manual of subversive art, one part love letter to the land itself, We Are ‘Nature’ Defending Itself shows us that there is an alternative to hopelessness when we overcome our fear and build real solidarity with one another and with the earth of which we are part.
