The Eco-Socialist Journal
Country Standard welcomes the first edition of Eco-Socialsit was produced for and distributed at the TUC "For a Future that works" demonstration on 20th October 2012, attended by 400,000 people. The editorial states that The Eco-Socialist is a newspaper initiated by the Green Left, eco-socialist grouping within the Green Party of England & wales.
Our aim is to create a wide ranging and inclusive publication (not merely propaganda for our own party) that contributes to the discussion on eco-socialisn and help build the broader movement against the interwoven crises of climate change and capitalism.
