Episode 53 -- Eugene V. Debs
Recorded June 27, 2015. Dan Hamilton, Chicago DSA's Political Education Director, interviews Professor William A. Pelz on the occasion of the recent release of the second edition of the Eugene V. Debs Reader: Socialism and the Class Struggle. Edited by Professor Pelz, the book is an anthology of writings and speeches by one of the most radical of America's early 20th century labor leaders, bringing to life a once powerful Socialist movement. Eugene Victor Debs (1855-1926), one of America's most famous socialists, was an important political figure on the American political landscape in the early 20th century. He ran as the Socialist Party's presidential candidate five times and obtained nearly a million votes in 1912 and 1920.

President Bernie Sanders?

Bernie Sanders

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has announced that he is officially running as a candidate for President in 2016 to further a desperately needed political revolution in the USA.

Senator Sanders is a lifelong champion of the public programs and democratic rights that empower working class people. His candidacy could help expand both the progressive movement and the democratic socialist voice within that movement.
