In recent years the world has been rocked by dramatic political upheavals such as Occupy and the Arab Spring. Globally there are new left political formations uniting layers of activists across Europe, and in Latin America social movements have captured governments and embarked on radical political experiments.
LeftWin is a blog dedicated to fighting for, and winning, these kinds of progressive political changes in New Zealand/Aotearoa. This blog hopes to see a movement and a politic driven by popular participation, that actively supports the struggle for Tino Rangatiratanga and that seeks to build an more equal and environmentally sustainable Aotearoa.
