The rebirth of the American Left?

The most interesting and under reported political battle of 2015 is shaping up out in Seattle between the Democrats and……………… the Socialists. Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant kicked off her 2015 re-election campaign with speeches by Chris Hedges, as well as Ruth Coppinger, a member of the Socialist Party in the Irish Parliament, Christos, a leader in Greece’s Syriza Party, and Dr. Jill Stein, former Green Party candidate for President. It was as much a call for a regrouping of an international socialist movement as it was a rally to keep a city council seat. I recommend the entire video but of particular interest is Ruth Copper at 1:24:00 and Sawant herself at 1:37:00. Enjoy and share far and wide.
