Read With Shred 5: Resource Radicals

Resource Radicals: From Petro-Nationalism to Post-Extractivism; thea Riofrancos (2020, 272 pgs)⁠

Although it’s clearly an academic text (no surprises there given the publisher), this account of the Left-in-power and the Left-in-Resistance, of Correa’s Pink Tide and CONAIE’s anti-extractive protest movement, is vital reading for everyone to be able to think alongside the author about thorny problems of how to build majorities, shift material conditions for the poor, and fight climate change which is NOT an easy task.⁠
