Leftist movements around the world are facing new problems and possibilities. Each spring in New York City, organizers and intellectuals gather at what has become known as the Left Forum. They discuss, debate, and develop new visions and strategies. On this edition, we hear selections from the opening panel of the Left Forum, recorded March 9, 2007.
The 2007 Left Forum was subtitled: “Forging a Radical Political Future,” but creating a leftist vision in today’s world generated some questions: Is “reform” alone the best that leftists can hope for? If not, what are the steps to deep economic, political and social transformation, and what kinds of organizations are needed to bring about real change?
