We Must March. But We Must Also Organize Locally

Sarah van Gelder

The next women’s march is in the works. Although big mobilizations are important, they’re just one tactic.

Between 4 million and 5 million people turned out in over 650 marches across the U.S. on Jan. 21, 2017. (Photo: Unsplash)

Overall, really an excellent piece if you’re able to ignore the shibboleth of Russia bashing.


#3

In this article, as in all too many others here and elsewhere, the terms “progressives” and “Democrats” are used as synonyms.

They’re not.

Otherwise well-done.


#4

Was the word Democrat used once in this article? Or is any kind of activism or participation in elections a “synonym” for Democrat in your mind?


#5

So hard to do that when Russia is mentioned once in passing to criticize Trump business interests.


#6

You’re not going to fool progressives here, van Gelder, they know what you’re up to with your constant Russia bashing in this article and blatant promotion of the Democratic Party. All cleverly concealed of course.


#7

Important point.

And, a good reason for a mass exodus from the Duopoly to create a new party, the “Progressive Party.”

Call it for what it “must” be.


#8

The author pointedly mentions the Our Revolution election winners.

Almost all of them ran as Democrats. I hope their leftism isn’t subsumed by the overall D-party morass of corporatism, but it will surprise no one when it happens.
