The converging crises of fascism, endless war, climate change, mass migrations, and economic/racial/gender oppression create unprecedented urgency for united, radical action – in the street and in the voting booth. At previous Left Forums – and over the past many decades – progressives have debated the merits of working to “reform” the Democratic Party versus building a united independent radical political front.
Producer: Wilton Vought (Last name rhymes with taught.)

The commotion during Margaret Kimberley's talk was due to the fact that someone leaned on a wall switch, inadvertently turning off the lights and lowering a projection screen from the ceiling.

For the time being you can see the Left Forum's complete description of this panel here:

Note: The Left Forum asked me to film and stream their nightly plenaries, and with only 20 minutes between the scheduled end of this panel and the start of the next plenary, I was unable to stay to the end. If I had I would have missed the start of the plenary. As it turned out I was able to film the presentations, missing only the Q&A.
