With Massachusetts Peace Action, last night CPDCS held what I think was a uniquely important webinar last night titled “Authoritarianism or Democracy” with Noam Chomsky, the historian Van Gosse, and the African-American (BLM & Poor People’s Campaign) organizer Ty dePasse.
It was, I think, uniquely excellent and had 640 people registered from across the U.S. and four other countries, and I thought to share it with you I was the lead organizer, but didn’t have to appear online.
Noam’s analysis will likely be quite familiar to you, but Van Gosse’s presentation was comprehensive and chilling and concluded with a dose of hope. And Ty described the daily experiences of white supremicist authoritarianism for People of Color, beginning with a terrible example here in Boston.
In any event, I think you will appreciate seeing it. You can listen in at: https://youtu.be/UH0v9pjo-I0
