Many on the left have laid the blame for defeat at the door of Brexit. It’s imperative that we also examine why Brexit became such a central issue and why the left was incapable of addressing it.

What we need to be doing is looking at forms of organizing, particularly new municipalist movements, that are gaining traction in post-industrial contexts.
