In the wake of Earth Day and the March for Science in the United States (US), this months' reblog features a Cairo Review interview with Judith Butler. Originally published prior to the US federal election, here Butler considers the prospects for alliances and coalitions involving the left across a range of geopolitical regions that have experienced democratic crises in recent years, including Egypt, Turkey, Israel, Europe, and the United States. We think Backchannels readers will appreciate the diagnoses and linkages that Butler offers and especially her thoughts on the challenges and strategies for new social movements.
