Libertarian Municipalism as a radically reformist approach: could we learn something from the political strategy of the Extinction Rebellion?

Matyáš Křížkovský

The aim of this contribution is to outline an adaptation of the Extinction Rebellion´s third demand (creation of Citizens´ Assemblies) to social-ecological design of Libertarian Municipalism. The merit of this strategical approach for the degrowth movement is an emphasis on the procedural transformation of a political institution through demanding radical reforms. The claim is, that any revolutionary movement that wants to change a system by design rather than by disaster, needs to include not only strategies for cultural and discursive changes (creation of counter-hegemony) but also strategies for the procedural transformation of political institutions.
