Red Planet

Capitalism has failed. What comes next? The fall of the current system is inevitable. A looming climate crisis, growing economic inequality, and the inability – or refusal – of governments to meet people’s needs all point to an impending collapse. It’s more important than ever that we build solidarity and begin developing foundations for the better world we want to have. Red Planet is a different kind of leftist streaming program, focused on talking to people about real work being done, not getting into arguments with right-wingers for clout. Each week, we speak with activists, organizers, creators, and people just like you doing based stuff all around the world and share practical steps for how we can all build the future together. Hosted by KiraChats, DJ Muel, and Conquest of Dread.
