LA-based Progressive

30 Jan 2018 20:24

Hi DiEM25 members and advocates. I’m an LA based Sander’s supporter alarmed that the fledgling progressive movement is being pulled in several directions, one less democratic. DiEM25 parallels Bernie’s movement in that it identifies the greatest threat to democracy as the global capitalist.

I met Yanis in Pasadena when he was here promoting his book “The Weak Suffer What They Must,” my background is in finance, having traded distressed and Junk debt for 20 years. I have access to a local political agenda setting non-profit and would like assistance in coordinating a series of events this Summer to explore growing global debt loads and the utility of debt generally, capitalist tools w/i socialist structures and migratory rights.

I look forward to replies!
