Nothing new from me, but a heads up about a couple of interesting discussions taking place on other blogs.
First, a conversation about immigrant rights organizing in the Southwest. Should organizers focus on countering the growth of nativist and fascist forces, or concentrate on building power in oppressed communities? Check out Gathering Forces for more.
Second, a developing debate about the role of the lumpenproletariat in the revolutionary movement. This one’s a little more abstract and doesn’t seem to be based on much actual organizing (unlike the discussion on GF). Still, it’s well worth checking out over at Advance the Struggle.
