Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung—New York Office
SATURDAY June 3rd Session 1: 10:00am - 11:50am
Recent euphoria, particularly over the rise of SYRIZA and PODEMOS in Europe and the Bernie Sanders campaign in the US, has quickly turned to despair for many on the left. How might we characterize the current state of the left in Europe and North America? How can we build our strength and position ourselves to win while simultaneously fighting ongoing neoliberal austerity and the rise of the nationalist right?
