He Won: Progressive Politics in the Age of Trump

Donald Trump's victory in the US presidential elections has sent a shock wave around the world. As the US grapples with a president who's election promises drew comparisons with fascism, the rest of the world is seeing a rise in support for populist right-wing causes such as Brexit, Front National and our own One Nation. What does Donald Trump's victory mean for the Left? What should the priorities of Australian progressives be in the wake of his victory? How can Australian progressives counter the rise of populist right-wing politics?

Join our panel as we discuss the future of progressive politics in the age of Trump.

Tim Ayres – NSW Secretary of the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union
