RIP Alan Roberts pioneer of Marxism and Ecology




Alan Roberts 1925-1917

Very sad that Alan Roberts died, he was a massive influence on my politics, I found a copy of his book The Self-Managing Environment in Chippenham Library in 1980.
He clearly lead a long healthy and militant life. A working class revolutionary and scientist, he was an associate of the amazing Nick Origlass.

Intellectual work isn't simply a mirror but about production and Alan produced impressive constructing an eco Marxist politics based on self-management, science and long before most of us had heard of Elinor Ostrom the commons. 

Comrade we miss you, we celebrate you and we will build on the foundations you have made us.
