Join PolEd to advance our mission to ground our work in a rigorous socialist analysis and offer ongoing opportunities to expand our collective understanding of socialist concepts, histories, and strategies.
This meeting's agenda will include political discussion on the Giles Jaunes movement, brief committee business (including our upcoming Committee election), and dedicated time devoted to work on our Imperialism study series.
In preparation for the portion of our meeting devoted to political discussion, we’re sharing the below article for comrades. But please come with your own questions around the Gilets Jaunes to discuss as well.
The Gilets Jaunes and the Democratic Question by Samual Hayat (Viewpoint Magazine): This article interrogates the “opposition between a professionalized, partisan, conception of politics and a consensual citizenist one” and challenges readers to consider what it means to “deprofessionalize politics without eliminating its conflictual character” in the context of the Gilets Jaunes movement and beyond.
