Class Warfare: The Future of Left Politics

Harvard Students for Bernie presents

Class Warfare: The Future of Left Politics

In 1912, Harvard armed its students to break a strike, using the motto “Defend Your Class.” On January 28, 2020, prominent progressives will gather at Harvard to discuss the past, present, and future of class struggle, and to envision the leftist movement that will arise from it. The 2020 primary is shaping up to be a referendum on the Democratic party, an ideological battle between the traditional, Biden-led wing of status quo politics and an emerging faction led by calls for the political revolution of Bernie Sanders. But the primary, like the 2020 election at large, is only the beginning.

Join us from 6-8pm to hear from two high-profile panels. The first, “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised,” features Krystal Ball (The Hill, Rising), Meagan Day (Jacobin), Katie Halper (Rolling Stone, Useful Idiots), and Nomiki Konst (The Young Turks).

The second panel, “Battle for the Soul of the Democratic Party,” includes Dr. Cornel West (philosopher, author, Harvard professor), Michael Brooks (The Michael Brooks Show), Phillip Agnew (Bernie 2020 national surrogate), and Esha Krishnaswamy (activist and host of historic.ly).

This conference is free and open to the public. D00rs open at 5:15, seats are first come first served so it’s recommended to come early.
