Socialist Alternative member Darletta Scruggs on Fox News earlier this year
Following the fantastic victory of the socialist councillor Kshama Sawant in Seattle, the magnificent struggle for a $15/hour minimum wage, the tremendous rise of the Black Lives Matter movement and the massive rise of socialist support around Bernie Sanders.
Radical socialist ideas are finding a wider audience in the most powerful capitalist country of them all!
It comes against the backdrop of one of the most polarizing and divisive US elections we have seen in recent times.
With two of the most hated candidates in US election history, the anti-establishment mood fueling Trump’s campaign, the dysfunction of the Republican party and on-going federal investigation of Clinton’s state department emails represent splits and fractures in the ruling class
Darletta Scruggs is a young activist in these working class struggles and a member of Socialist Alternative – our co-thinkers in the USA. She will be speaking at the Socialist Party’s ‘Rally for Socialism’ on the evening of Saturday 11 November in central London – part of the weekend event, Socialism 2016 and coming up to Birmingham.
Catch her speaking and join the debate on Tuesday 15th November, 7:30pm, upstairs at The Victoria, John Bright Street, B1 1BN. Also, be sure to click ‘Going’ and share the Facebook event
