AOC & Biden? Do we need a new political party? Next District 5 Meeting
February 26, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

AOC rightly pointed out that she and Biden, in any other country, would not be in the same party. The corporate wing of the Democratic Party, the dominant wing, is determined to defeat Bernie and his signature policies, which are favored by the majority of working people who make up the base of the Democratic Party. All this begs the question, if the dominant wing of the Democraic Party – it’s leadership, big donors, and institutions – are opposed to the policies supported by the majority of working people, whose interests do they represent?
If we decide it’s needed, what would a new political party look like, how would it be different? What steps should be taken to realize a new party? Is this realistic or is it off in the distant future? How should DSA concretely approach the question of a new political party in 2020/21, whether Bernie wins or loses?
