 Building the insurrection will rely heavily on our ability to organise the elements of society sometimes discarded as “lumpenproletariat.” Looking to examples of insurrectionary anarchist organisations such as the Class War Federation of the 80s reveals the important fact that such individuals are among the most radical and active when organised. If we are able to spread the ideas of autonomy whilst listening to the climate anger of this disenfranchised class, then we stand a much better chance of being able to act as a catalyst for riots and insurrection. Building the insurrection will rely heavily on our ability to organise the elements of society sometimes discarded as “lumpenproletariat.” Looking to examples of insurrectionary anarchist organisations such as the Class War Federation of the 80s reveals the important fact that such individuals are among the most radical and active when organised.

-Building towards general strikes will rely not only on our ability to mobilise industrially diverse masses of workers, but also on the effect that the gathering insurrection is having on the class and climate consciousness of the labour force as a whole. If the intensity and organisation of the rioting is fierce enough, then it is almost inevitable that the workers will have no desire whatever to go back to their jobs in the morning. In such a scenario we can encourage the rioting to meld with the strikes towards the aim of completely occupying the industries and spaces by which capitalism and the state operate. We cannot allow society to continue in a direction that leads to our planet’s ecological destruction,​ and as such we must aim to create a society in which management of the industries is shared not between a bureaucratic elite (the state) and an economic elite (the owners of property and businesses),​ but between those who run them (the workers) and those who use and are effected ​by them (the people). If we are to build such a society, then the insurrection must include the formation of community assemblies to manage the communes by free association,​ and worker co-operatives to manage the industries on which the communes rely. The occupation and defence of the industries by the workers, as well as the occupation and defence of public spaces by the people, will be essential to the success of the climate insurrection.+Building towards general strikes will rely not only on our ability to mobilise industrially diverse masses of workers, but also on the effect that the gathering insurrection is having on the class and climate consciousness of the labour force as a whole.
