The US revolutionary left in the 60s rebellion10:00am Sat 30 Mar
About this session
The 1960s saw millions of young people around the world rise up against the system. Sick of the anti-communist conservatism which dominated the post-WWII years, they fought against the imperialist war in Vietnam, against racism, and against state repression. In the process many began to question capitalism as a whole. Long-time US socialist and participant in the 60s rebellion Joel Geier will join us for this session on how revolutionaries related to the explosion of radicalism – their successes and failures, and what lessons can be drawn out of the experience for socialists trying to rebuild the left today.
