Bill Fletcher Jr. offers some initial takeaways from the U.S. presidential election. He says it was a referendum on globalization and demographics and represents the consolidation of a misogynistic white united front in U.S. politics and society.

Activist Bill Fletcher, Jr., says “It’s easy to assume that someone else is giving the funds needed for organizations like Mondoweiss to survive, and to assume that survival is enough. But if we want to expand their influence for real change, it will take resources. Our opponents understand this, and they understand it very well. Knowing the pathbreaking, exceptional work of Mondoweiss, I cannot imagine letting it get to the precipice before contributing—and so I give regularly.”
