How Should Socialists Fight Right-Wing Extremism? Next District 3 Mtg
Short URL: https://seattledsa.org/?p=17599
6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
Given the recent shootings in Kenosha and Portland, and their aftermath, it’s important we continue discussing right-wing extremism. This is a natural follow-up to our meeting on fascism last month, which was a good discussion but didn’t focus enough on how we fight right-wing extremism today. It’s clear that far right groups like Patriot Prayer, the Proud Boys, and the Boogaloo Movement continue to grow and become emboldened under the Trump administration and this trend looks like it will continue for the foreseeable future.
How should socialists, the labor movement, and left wing progressive workers and young people fight right-wing extremism? Should left wing protesters arm themselves? Or is continued and growing mass action the answer? What strategies can move wider layers of the multi-racial working class into struggle against right-wing extremism and capitalism?
Join District 3 members to discuss these important questions as well as an update on the BLM uprising and our efforts to organize town halls to pressure council members to stay true to their pledge to defund SPD by 50%.
