Alexander Homits from the Connolly Youth Movement was our guest on this episode of Chatter. Right now we’re experiencing what I’m sure will be looked back at as a really volatile and crucial period in the history of humanity. One thing is certain is that post-Corona the world is unlikely to quite the same and if we’re lucky we might be able to use this moment for some really positive changes. What is certain is that those changes are unlikely to come from the top, they will emerge or be demanded by grassroots movements. In trying to get an understanding of this I wanted to speak to someone involved in groups who are trying to imagine how that change might come about and that’s how I found Alex. We chatted about his critique of electoral politics, the EU and global finance as a new form of imperialism, and how the CYM is trying to build ways to force changes outside through trade and tenant unions.
