It was such a delight to join the Anarres Project for Alternative Futures for this wide-ranging conversation about the current landscape of the radical left in North America and prospects for transformative movements today! We discussed many topics that are close to my heart, including developing robust movement ecosystems, cultivating intergenerational organizing, resisting sectarianism, and learning from movement history.
The Anarres Project, as they describe themselves, “is a forum for conversations, ideas, and initiatives that promote a future free of domination, exploitation, oppression, war, and empire. The Project is based on the understanding that past, present, and future are not separate. We are intent on uncovering the many living futures constantly coming into being in the present, those innovations and creative insurgencies happening everywhere in our midst, and exploring the affinities between them.”
