Trump, Bernie, and US politics today

10:00am Saturday 24 August

About this session

The disgusting Trump Presidency continues. He threatens war with Iran, has started a trade war with China, supports environmentally destructive fossil fuels, and has launched fullscale attacks on women, immigrants and people of colour. At the same time there is the rise of a new socialist consciousness which offers some hope of fundamental change, even though it risks being trapped in the dead-end of the Democratic Party. This talk will offer some insight into these contradictory dynamics.
