On Tuesday, 17 July, at 7 pm, we will hold a special public meeting in London to launch our new pamphlet, Resisting Trumpist Reaction (and Left Accommodation): Marxist-Humanist Initiative’s Perspectives for 2018. As the Queen greets Donald Trump, visiting here at the invitation of the British government, we stand in solidarity with the people of the United States (documented and undocumented). Trump’s regime threatens to destroy the country’s liberal democracy, curtail voting rights and greatly exacerbate white supremacy, misogyny and nativism.
The meeting will be held at Houseman’s Bookstore, 5 Caledonian Road, King’s Cross London N1 9DX. It is free to attend (donations welcome).
Our new pamphlet can be purchased at the meeting, or by clicking here. A free PDF version is available here. It explores how to fight Trumpism and the far right on the foundations laid by Karl Marx. We argue that #theResistance deserves our solidarity and support; those on the Left who seek to normalise Trump’s regime ignore the reaction it has unleashed and the real threats it presents. Social progress in the US requires that Trump be removed from office and Trumpism suffer a thorough defeat.
Activity and protests are vital, but not enough. Serious theoretical work is needed to work out how to ensure that #theResistance is not coopted by “politics as usual” forces in the Democratic Party or “Leftists” who would thwart it or subsume it under their agendas. Please join us to help work through these issues.
