*What's Left? A Platypus Teach-in*

Saturday 4:30 pm | December 13, 2014

Encuentro 5, 9A Hamilton Place, Boston, MA 02108

*What has the Left been, **and what can it yet become?*

Let's build a conversation around these questions.

This introductory meet-and-greet will consist of a brief presentation
explaining Platypus, its various activities, and its history. This will be
followed by Q&A and then an open discussion with those in attendance about
their own interests and background in the Left.

*Platypus* is a project for political education and clarification of and on
the Left, based on university campuses in North America, Europe and South
Asia. We think that the Left can no longer afford to use the "Right" as a
cover for its own failures, and that activism alone -- however urgent and
necessary -- is not sufficient for real social change. Instead, Platypus
focuses on discussing and debating the long history of the Left in order to
make sense of its ultimate failures and the desiccated remains that we
confront today.
