Rightwing Populism, Neofascism, & Imperialism in the Trump Era: Where Do We Go from Here?
This coalition aims to develop a thoughtful, multidimensional, and proactive opposition to the warmongering authoritarianism that has become evident around the globe, as exemplified by Donald Trump in the U.S., Vladimir Putin in Russia, and Xi Jinping in China. We target the connections among capitalist class oppression, imperialism, racism, sexism, heterosexism, environmental destruction, nativism, Islamophobia, and anti-Semitism.
