With the Left Forum closing its extended panel deadline on Jan. 31 and unveiling its agenda of sessions, the 2012 event looks to bring people together around the theme “Occupying the System: Confronting Global Capitalism.”
The Left Forum’s coordinator, Seth Adler, drops in to discuss the Left Forum, its history and the political tendencies, social movements and internal and external tensions in the world today. In this wide-ranging conversation, Adler talks about cultivating dialog between at times contending ideologies, how political organizing models are shifting and how they may stay the same, and matters of race, gender and class in political movements.
Music featured includes Zuzuka Poderosa, iAparato! and Wugazi.
