On Friday evening, Jacobin Magazine, Haymarket Books, and Verso Books co-sponsored a lively “Anti-Inauguration” event at the Lincoln Theater in Washington, DC, where Naomi joined an exciting lineup of speakers offering their take on Trump and the way forward.
In her speech, Naomi contemplates the band of uniquely “junky capitalists” now ascending to power, and how to prepare for and respond to the violent shocks they’re already starting to unleash. She ends with a call to build and strengthen connective tissue between our movements as we push for alternatives to Trumpism.
Check out the full video below (the event begins at about five minutes in). Naomi’s remarks are followed by fantastic speeches from journalists Anand Gopal, Jeremy Scahill, and Owen Jones, and author and scholar Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor.
