On Sunday March 13, I sat down with Seth Adler, the coordinator of Left Fourm, an annual gathering in North America of the U.S. and international Left. Continuing a tradition begun in the 1960s, Left Forum brings together intellectuals and organizers to share perspectives, strategies, experience, and vision. Last year, The Mantle provided more coverage of the conference than any other media outlet.
This year, Left Forum’s theme is, “The Politics of Solidarity.” The conference will take place March 18-20 at Pace University in New York City. Cornel West, Barbara Ehrenreich, John Nichols, Richard Wolff, Saskia Sassen, and Laura Flanders are just some of the over 1,100 participants across 300+ panels featured this year. For more information and to register, visit leftforum.org.
Over the course of our wide-ranging conversation, Adler and I spoke about highlights of this year’s forum, the history of and need for Left Forum, labor struggles in the U.S., revolutionary movements in the Middle East and North Africa, concepts of solidarity and unity, and much more. Listen and enjoy!
