Description

Meeting with Gilbert Achcar and Samah Bushra

Monday 24 June, 7.30pm


The recent uprisings in Sudan and Algeria show that the conditions that gave rise to the Arab Spring in 2013 have not gone away. But these movements against authoritarianism and exploitation still face existential threats. Today’s protesters have learned from the recent struggles. They are still organised and are determined to win. The left should rally in support of the uprisings and rebuild a tradition of internationalist solidarity with the global movement of exploited and oppressed.

Gilbert Achcar and Samah Bushra, a Sudanese activist, will discuss the dangers and hope for the movements for democracy in the region.

Gilbert Achcar is a professor at SOAS, University of London. His most recent books are Marxism, Orientalism, Cosmopolitanism (2013), The People Want: A Radical Exploration of the Arab Uprising (2013), and Morbid Symptoms: Relapse in the Arab Uprising (2016)
