Join the Party for Socialism and Liberation for an analysis of how the system protects corporate profits over people.
Wildfire risk and severity has increased dramatically over the last decade throughout the West as a direct result of human-made climate change. While drier conditions make the region more vulnerable, faulty PG&E infrastructure has been linked to last year’s North Bay fires as well as the recent Butte County fire.
Instead of the government protecting the residents of California and taking public control of the statewide utility company, Gov. Brown passed SB 901 last year capping the amount a corporation can be held liable for disasters like the recent fires.
Let's continue to build the movement for socialism where the needs of society and the planet are the priority!
