The seeds of resistance are taking root. The Progressive International has been established to counter the global political shift to the far-right.
Extinction Rebellion activists risk prison and hefty fines to halt the climate emergency.
Black Lives Matter activists are taking direct action to make both sides of the political establishment bend to their demands for justice and dignity.
Thanks to Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour Party in the UK has been dragged kicking and screaming to the left.
In the Fifth république, the pro-immigrant, anti-climate change, La France insoumise (France Unbowed) has 500,000 members, despite being just four years old.
In the U.S., progressives are rejecting the Republican Party that calls itself the Democratic Party and forming a long-overdue, third organization: Movement for a People’s Party.
People are taking action against the war on them and, in the spirit of international solidarity, could soon be active against the wars on others.
