The New Wave of Resistance in Our Time

With the rise of the far right and its cynical exploitation of "class" as a mobilizing tool, the left has been forced onto the defensive. This event is a bold reassertion of a class politics that also validates the struggles and priorities of so-called "identity-based" groups. Public sociologist, Charles Derber draws on his new book, Welcome to the Revolution, to support a new wave of resistance to the intersectional system of militarized capitalism.

He is joined by Janet MacGillivray, an environmental lawyer, indigenous activist, and member of Seeding...

New York voters have the opportunity every 20 years to vote on whether to convene a constitutional convention to revise the state's constitution. The question will be on the ballot November 7, and in advance of the vote The Indypendent will host a public debate featuring both supporters and opponents of holding a constitutional convention, or ConCon.

Progressive groups in New York that are normally allies are deeply divided on the issue. Supporters see a unique opportunity to reform a broken state government while opponents warn Albany's swampy culture of corruption could subsume attempts at reform and threaten longstanding protections for public workers, the environment and indigent people.

Bringing the latest ecological research together with histories of colonialism, indigenous struggles, slave revolts, and other rebellions and uprisings, Moore and Patel demonstrate that throughout the history of capitalism, crises have always prompted fresh efforts...
