Rainbow Coalition Fascism

Room: 
1.125
Timeslot: 
SATURDAY June 3rd Session 1: 10:00am - 11:50am
Abstract: 
Rainbow Coalition Fascism will critique the pervasive use of identity politics through the most current social movement of our day, the Black Lives Matter movement. We intend to unpack the political limitations of identity politics by raising awareness about the contradictions it hides. Furthermore, we intend to reveal how class conscious politics is most suitable for addressing these contradictions. This panel intends to present a class conscious framework for organizers who intend to fight racism, sexism, nationalism and all forms of anti-working class ideology. Workers of the world can radically respond to nationalism of every form and we can free ourselves from wage slavery!
