On April 30th we hosted a webinar discussing how acts of solidarity, workers’ self-organization, and mutual aid can be building blocks of social power and pre-figure the human relationships of a democratic socialist society. In our discussion among panelists and questions from those attending we sought to answer: How do we connect organizing mutual aid to building the power to challenge the capitalist state’s neo-liberal austerity policies? How do we connect workers’ self-organization to a movement for revolutionary change? 

Featured speakers included Solidarity comrades Ann Finkel, a Boston school teacher, and Ted McTaggart, a Michigan nurse, who were joined by Michael Eskeula, restaurant worker and DSA member from New Orleans and Cooperation Jackson co-founder Kali Akuno from Jackson, Mississippi.
