Panel discussion with Les Leopold, author of "Runaway Inequality: An Activist's Guide to Economic Justice" and co-founder and director of the Labor Institute in New York City. Co-chairs: Scott Harris and Richard Hill, Between The Lines Radio Newsmagazine.
Listen to the discussion and view the PowerPoint presentation: "How Do We Build a Mass Movement to Reverse Runaway Inequality?" May 20, 2016
The regime of capitalism today is characterized by massive and increasing inequality: wealth and power accumulates at one pole while misery, austerity, and ecological degradation explodes at the other. It is no wonder that militarism in the U.S. and abroad is exploding. We see it in the U.S., in the way local police forces are armed with surplus military weapons; in the use of public funds to procure mercenary corporate security forces and enlisted people to fight in yet another war in the name of democracy; in the deployment of fear generating security state surveillance practices and the inflammatory rhetoric of terrorism, to try to terrify a domestic population into acquiescence. Moderator: Laura Flanders, executive producer and host of The Laura Flanders Show. She is currently a contributing writer to The Nation and a regular contributor to MSNBC.
The Sanders campaign has drawn tens of thousands into massive, enthusiastic rallies for "a political revolution against the billionaire class". Grassroots organizations like "Labor for Bernie," "People for Bernie" and "#Movement4Bernie" swelled around the country. How do we continue the fight against the billionaire class after the primaries? Do we need a new party for the 99%? Can this be a step towards revitalizing the labor movement? Come discuss these questions and more with leaders of the movement.
