Please join us for a five-day intensive seminar on social ecology designed for both newcomers to social ecology as well as established social ecology scholars. For newcomers, the seminar provides an introduction to the theory and politics of social ecology, while focusing on contemporary movements for social liberation and ecological justice. For students seeking to delve more deeply into the theory and praxis of social ecology, we will have courses that focus on philosophical and political questions emerging in today’s exciting political context. We will address a range of crucial questions regarding how to create a truly democratic society.

Debbie Bookchin pens a powerful essay for the Nation on the war in Turkey and what US/European powers must do to stem the bloodshed.
"To help end the violence, and as a matter of human rights, Western negotiators should pressure Erdogan to end Öcalan’s isolation on the prison island of Imrali. They should insist that Syrian Kurds be included in any negotiations about the future of Syria, and they should mediate a settlement that will support autonomy for the Turkish Kurds just as the United States has for the Kurds in Iraq—not only because the PKK’s sister militias in Syria have been the only consistently effective fighting force against ISIS in the Middle East, but because it is time to recognize that all Kurds deserve what has been so long overdue them: the freedom to rule their own lives."
Right now, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is undertaking a massive assault on Kurdish communities in southeastern Turkey in an effort to wipe out the only truly democratic movement in the Middle East.
