This is a video of a panel discussion held in Washington DC, the evening prior to the February 2013 Forward on Climate Rally, a mass demonstration against the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.
The event was sponsored by the Ecosocialist Contingent, a coalition of socialist organizations that marched together at the demonstration to make the case for a united and independent grassroots movement that does not look toward the Democratic Party for solutions or help to the climate crisis.
