laura conti: ecology and class

For her, ecology is both a science and an awareness "that there is a future, a responsibility for that future". Ecology is therefore inseparable from politics – politics in the sense of the art of governing and the art of living as a community. That way, ecology is a field of struggle, or more precisely, of class struggle. The struggle for the environment encompasses the workers' struggle for a clean working environment, for healthy living and working conditions – and vice versa: public health requires a clean environment.
