1.
Ecofeminism and the Reproductive Strike

Tuesday, 28 October 2014
2:00 p.m.
Mu 203, Simone de Beauvoir Institute
Concordia University, Montreal
2170 Bishop Street

Light refreshments will be served

https://www.facebook.com/events/345041815657229/?notif_t=plan_user_joined


At the time of the Chernobyl disaster in April 1986, the government of
Finland was planning to expand its nuclear power program with the
construction of a new reactor. As public opinion turned sharply
against nuclear, resistance to the project was led by a group of
feminists at the University of Tampere who organized a petition asking
women to pledge not to bear children for the next four years unless
the plans were abandoned. They rapidly garnered over 5,000 signatures,
and within months the government conceded.

Is the reproductive strike relevant to ecological struggle in the
North American context? Could it, for instance, be effective in a
potential campaign against the Alberta tar sands? Given Canada's
reliance on immigration (versus reproduction) for the expansion of its
labour force, would such a movement have any political leverage? And
would it be complicated by the ethnic diversity of the Canadian body
politic?

To address these questions, I examine the shifting cultural
significance of reproduction in the Canadian context, with a focus on
our transition, circa the 1970s, from a zeitgeist of nation-building
to one of market-building. Although a tactical reproductive strike
would present unique difficulties in the contemporary moment, I
suggest that it may nonetheless be effective in galvanizing critical
public discourse on the meaning of childrearing amidst ecological
crisis.

Niko Block is a researcher and writer based in Toronto. He spent two
years on the editorial board of the McGill Daily, and three years on
the board of directors of CKUT Radio. He has been active for several
years in the struggle to liberate Palestine, in addition to the Quebec
student movement and Idle No More. He is presently working on a book
called Access to Power: The Gender Politics of Energy Enclosure for
Fernwood Press.

ABSTRACT

At the time of the Chernobyl disaster in April 1986, the government of
Finland was planning to expand its nuclear power program with the
construction of a new reactor. As public opinion turned sharply
against nuclear, resistance to the project was led by a group of
feminists at the University of Tampere who organized a petition asking
women to pledge not to bear children for the next four years unless
the plans were abandoned. They rapidly garnered over 5,000 signatures,
and within months the government conceded.

Is the reproductive strike relevant to ecological struggle in the
North American context? Could it, for instance, be effective in a
potential campaign against the Alberta tar sands? Given Canada's
reliance on immigration (versus reproduction) for the expansion of its
labour force, would such a movement have any political leverage? And
would it be complicated by the ethnic diversity of the Canadian body

To address these questions, I examine the shifting cultural
significance of reproduction in the Canadian context, with a focus on
our transition, circa the 1970s, from a zeitgeist of nation-building
to one of market-building. Although a tactical reproductive strike
would present unique difficulties in the contemporary moment, I
suggest that it may nonetheless be effective in galvanizing critical
public discourse on the meaning of childrearing amidst ecological
crisis.
