What is Root Force? PDF Print
The Earth is dying. No—the Earth is being killed. We are losing cultural and biological diversity at rates unheard of in the history of our species—and despite all our efforts, these rates are only accelerating.
The Earth is being murdered by a global system that tortures and kills every human or nonhuman that it cannot dominate. This system kills hundreds of thousands of civilians each year in wars for oil and water. It tortures millions of nonhuman animals a year in laboratories and factory farms. It destroys indigenous communities, dispossesses small farmers, enslaves workers in fields and factories, and poisons every living thing with chemicals and radiation.
War has been declared, and we are all losing. These are not opinions; these are well-known, well-documented truths. The question is: What are we going to do about it?
Come out to the Root Force road show, to learn about direct action campaigns in Latin America and what people are doing about corporate globalization. Stay for bands (folk punk) literature tables, and other goodies.
