Our Present Moment in History: a wide-ranging discussion with Aaron Bastani in a packed EarthH Theatre – 14th FEB 2024

02/03/2024 by

On 14th February 2024, I had the great privilege of a live discussion with Aaron Bastani in front of a marvellous audience at EartH in Hackney, North-East London. We talked about, of course, Israel-Palestine, but also about China and, in particular, the New Cold War being waged for control of what I call cloud capital. We touched on the United States’ ‘liberal’ imperial ways, Russia, Iran, Germany (with special reference on Nordstream and the new intolerance of dissenting views) – and on whether legal bans on fascists is the way to tackle fascism’s resurgence.

Thank you to Raoul and Francesca Martinez for organising this, along with the brilliant Novara Media, as part of the promotion of their  new documentary series, ‘In The Eye Of The Storm: The Political Odyssey of Yanis Varoufakis’ which can be watched here: www.eyeofthestorm.info
