Transform: Issue #2 | Contents
Right-wing forces have frequently emerged stronger from the financial crisis of 2008, but left and progressive forces have also challenged for power, and unfolding political developments and new mobilisations in Britain and elsewhere demonstrate that the right is being fought and can be defeated.
This issue of Transform addresses some of these questions: looking at the UK 2017 general election outcome and what the Labour surge means; exploring the impact of Trump’s onslaught on women; closer investigation of the practice of left parties and movements in Germany and Poland; thoughts on how to drive forward a socialist agenda; and a powerful memoire of the miners’ strike and its transformative legacy.
Our pages are open to explore the immense political challenges that we face. Please get in touch if you would like to contribute: contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
