The left is a big tent, but it must include belief in free speech

Redline readers should check out Plebity. It is a left non-profit free speech organisation with articles and resources reclaiming free speech as the necessary foundation for achieving all other leftist ideals.

Plebity stands for:

  • rejecting authoritarianism and totalitarianism
  • organizing around issues of class and fighting for economic equality, environmental justice and against endless wars
  • working against historic and enduring racism and bigotry
  • critiquing identity politics which has created an enormous rift on the left that only serves the powerful elites. This division has profoundly distracted us from uniting to challenge power and create real change that will make everyone’s lives better
  • supporting workplace democracy and opposing oligarchic control of society by a small number of monopolistic corporations
  • combatting both private and state censorship
  • resisting surveillance capitalism and the corresponding control of our online lives. We support efforts to develop and educate around alternative software.

    It has a free speech tracker with over 100 entries
