Extractive industries have played a central role in the origins and development of capitalism. From the "entombment in mines of the aboriginal population" of primitive accumulation to the struggles of today, people have frequently struggled against extractive industry's exploitation of workers and destruction of the natural environment. This talk will attempt to provide an analysis of extractive industry's place within the capitalist system and how its destructive power can be defeated.
