In the first part of an epic two-hour two-parter with Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant, Briahna and Kshama dive into Kshama's recent successes in Seattle before interrogating the institutional failures of the DSA & elected progressives. Why will Workers' Alternative be different? They then move on to continuing the debate over how much the left should invest in the 2024 Democratic Presidential primary. Does the energy fomenting around RFK Jr. present an opportunity for left coalition-building? Or is there a risk that encouraging strategic primary votes creates an illusion that a given candidate is a trusted fighter for left/working class interests? This Monday episode will be made available to all, and part two will air as a premium episode on Thursday -- flipping the usual schedule. You won't want to miss part two, in which Briahna and Kshama parse AOC's recent interview with David Sirota, and address the excuses given for her strike-crushing railroad vote, among other actions in office.
