Left resources and links – Week 16, 2017 April 21, 2017

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

We’re looking for links/resources useful to the Left at Starkadders suggestion. This can be archives, support groups, study groups, whatever people think can assist in building up a stack of easily accessible tools necessary to the tasks ahead. Perhaps keep articles – unless they’re longform, to the What You Want to Say thread. We’re going to do this on a monthly basis.

I have a few podcast recommendations for America: Pod Save America (mostly liberal because the hosts are former obama people), Rational Security (Good on foreign and defense policy though again liberal), This is Hell (is a good lefty american and world news podcast) Belaboured (from dissent magazine is on labor news) for the UK Novaro Audio (is a left corbyn supporting radio station/podcast), The New Statesman’s podcast is good. For Ireland I assume anything I could recommend most of you would have heard of with the possible exception of Spoil Your Reign which is a podcast on Irish society, politics and culture from a leftish prespective

Lawrence Wittner, whose work on the nuclear disarmament movement I have long admired, has a piece on the new internationa league of far-right politicians:



CL - April 25, 2017

“People’s lives are less precarious in the core EU than in the English-speaking countries. Voters in the major continental nations may get angry and disappointed — say, with French President Francois Hollande’s feckless leadership or with the recent inflow of refugees from the Middle East — but they don’t get desperate enough to vote in a Donald Trump or to inflict Brexit-style turmoil on their countries.”

The ‘extreme centre’ seems to be holding, although that centre continues to move rightwards.
