Notes from the Left Forum Part Three
- New York 06/07/2017 by Linda Perry (WBAI News)

Nick Powers and David Brotherton, The Left Forum, John Jay College, June 2017
The conference titled Resistance was held in New York City June 2nd through June 4th. It looked at questions of power, strategy and tactics as resistance to Donald Trump rises. The focus of many panels this year was on moving beyond Trump into an examination of the system which produced him.

This program is drawn from a panel put together by the Policing and Social Justice Project at Brooklyn College called Resisting NYPD Gang Policing. It also featured a discussion on Black on Black crime. We hear from sociologist and criminologist David Brotherton, Nick Powers with The Indypendent and Kazembe Balagun with the Rosa Luxemburg Siftung.
