On today’s episode of rabble radio, we’re discussing the Progressive International movement, a budding network of social movements, activists, and political organizers around the world who are linking up local struggles with an international vision to rebuild a progressive world order. Progressive International is working towards a vision of a world built around a shared progressive values of solidarity, prosperity, and equity.

The movement was launched in November 2018 at the Sanders Institute in Vermont.

On today’s program, rabble’s Assistant Editor Sophia Reuss interviews NDP MP Niki Ashton. She was at the initial launch of the Progressive International, and spoke on a panel with former Greek Finance Minister and leader of the Democracy in Europe Movement, DiEM25. Yanis Varoufakis, as well as U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, and other prominent progressive figures.
