Obama After Massachusetts: What’s gone wrong? How can he get back on track?

  • Michael Kazin, Co-editor of the leading US journal, Dissent, and Professor of History, Georgetown University
  • William D. Barnard, Chair, Democrats Abroad U.K.
  • John Kampfner, Chief Executive, Index on Censorship, author of Blair’s Wars and Freedom For Sale: How We Made Money And Lost Our Liberty
  • Eric Lee, Founder of Labourstart, online news service of the international trade union movement

Dissent Magazine, Democratiya, Compass, Progress, and Renewal invite you to a panel discussion.

A recent New Statesman front cover featured ‘Barack W. Bush.’ Ted Kennedy’s Massachusetts senate seat has gone Republican. Health reform is stalled, again, but bankers’ bonuses are climbing. The rightist Tea Party movement is on the march. And Fox News is officially the most trusted TV network in the US. It wasn’t meant to turn out this way. What’s gone wrong? How can Obama and the Democrats get back on track? What role can progressive ideas and movements play?

The event will take place at 6.30pm (6.10pm entry, coffee and tea available) on Wednesday, March 24 at Mishcon de Reya, Summit House, 12 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4QD. (Nearest tube: Holborn)

The meeting is free but places are limited. Please RSVP to Media enquiries for Michael Kazin to Alan Johnson on 079 0505 1124 /
