In 1936, British citizens defeated fascism in the famous Battle of Cable Street. Almost a century later, far-right fascist forces are back. Cable Street explores the current global rise of the far-right and fascism: what is driving this phenomenon, where is it leading, and how can progressives respond?
Why are progressives bad at storytelling? Is a left-wing nationalism possible? And is the left too concerned with definitions instead of winning?
In this episode of Cable Street, I’m joined by professor Richard Sandbrook to discuss how the left can win and use power.
Geoff is the host of Cable Street and co-founder of The Cable.
