“What can we do today, so that tomorrow we can do what we are unable to do today?”
In an attempt to answer Paulo Freire’s question, we heard from LeftRoots’ cadre and compas who believe that in order to halt the most dangerous forces of Trumpism, defeat neoliberalism and, eventually, advance down the revolutionary road to socialism, we must defeat Trump in November. In this first roundtable event, we dug into a new LeftRoots project to test out this strategic hypothesis, as well as our approach to liberatory strategy and principled struggle on the left in these times.
The basis of discussion for this Roundtable was LeftRoots 2020 ‘Situational Objective’: Defeating Trump in 2020 and Advancing Strategy for Liberation: A ‘Situational Objective’ for the US Left.
A recording of the Roundtable is coming soon!

The Next Roundtable For Radicals will be held on Tues, Nov. 17th 4 -6pm PT / 7-9pm ET.
About the Roundtables for Radicals Series
In September, LeftRoots launched our “Out to Win: Roundtables for Radicals” online event series, a space for Leftroots Cadre, Compas and social movement leftists to grapple with the key strategic questions of our times. This will be a national space for fellow travelers to build with one another as left comrades, as we work to develop a more strategic social movement left.
