Progressives Unite Globally to Tackle New Crisis



The Coronavirus pandemic has affected the whole world and exposed the common fault lines of neoliberal capitalism and rightwing authoritarianism. This week prominent left figures from all over the world joined together for the launch of a bold new coalition called Progressive International that sees itself as, “an institution for the world's progressive forces, with a mission to make solidarity more than a slogan.”

Progressive International was born from a call made two years ago by Jane O’Meara Sanders of the Sanders Institute and Yanis Varoufakis, former Finance Minister of Greece. Council members include such left luminaries as Noam Chomsky, Arundhati Roy, and Naomi Klein, but also Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa and actor Gael Garcia Bernal.

Rising Up with Sonali is a radio and television show that brings progressive news coverage rooted in gender and racial justice to a wide audience. 

Rising Up With Sonali was built on the foundation of Sonali Kolhatkar's earlier show, Uprising, which became the longest-running drive-time radio show on KPFK in Los Angeles hosted by a woman.

RUS airs on Free Speech TV every weekday.
