Socialism, Bernie Sanders, & the Democratic Party: Debating the 2016 Election

This video includes the full debate plus open discussion & closing remarks. **Apologies to Dustin Guastella. His closing remarks were cut short when the camera battery died.** The Democratic primary campaign of Bernie Sanders has ignited a new enthusiasm among many who are fed up with the status-quo of politics in the United States. Tens of thousands have joined rallies to hear Sanders decry the billionaire class and call for an end to inequality. Many on the Left have embraced the campaign. Others have argued against support for Sanders, calling instead for Leftist to organize independently of the Democratic Party. Join a panel with members from Democratic Socialists of America, Green Party, Jacobin Magazine and the International Socialist Organization in a panel discussion on the Sanders campaign and socialist strategy during elections. Speakers will represent both support and opposition to supporting the Sanders primary campaign. Speakers Dustin Guastella Coordinator and organizer for the Democratic Socialists of America’s We Need Bernie campaign and leader in DSA’s Philadelphia Local.
