Socialist Appeal - British section of the International Marxist Tendency: the Marxist voice of labour and youth.

Donald Trump's victory in the US presidential elections is a political earthquake that makes Brexit look like a minor tremor in comparison. We publish here videos from Alan Woods and Rob Sewell, in which they discusses the anti-establishment mood lying behind Trump's win and the implications for America and the rest of the world.

Donald Trump's victory in the US presidential elections has delivered the biggest political upset in history; a political earthquake that has shattered the entire global Establishment, making Brexit look like a minor tremor in comparison.

In reality, however, Trump is not the problem, but a symptom of a more general malaise in society. The system has broken, and the American Dream has become a nightmare for millions, with rising inequality and continuing racial oppression.

In the following videos, Alan Woods - editor of In Defence of Marxism - and Rob Sewell - editor of Socialist Appeal, speaking at the Sussex Marxist society - discuss the anti-establishment mood lying behind Trump's win and the implications for America and the rest of the world.
