Show Notes

I attended a summit called "Inaugurate the Resistance" which was hosted by the Progressive Independent Party. It was held at a night club called the Kabin Lounge in Washington D.C. on January 22nd, 2017. The summit featured panel discussions and a chance to meet various representatives of progressive organizations with the hope of those relationships eventually turning into a unified coalition ready for real electoral fights.


I had spent the last month trading emails and phone calls with the media liaisons at the Green Party to try and secure an interview with Dr. Stein before I flew out to Washington, but I never got confirmation. I knew she was going to speak at the event on the panel discussing electoral strategy, so I took the opportunity to speak to her and she agreed to sit down with us for the project. In 2016, both corporate candidates were historically disliked by the voters, which elevated third parties for a minute and ended up giving Dr. Stein a national platform. I thought her experience in 2016 could provide some insight into how the system keeps opposition voices on the fringe and away from the cameras.

Resist 02: Maria Svart

On the afternoon of January 19th, 2017, I went to the Washington D.C. offices of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) where I met with their National Director Maria Svart. This was just a day before the mass demonstrations and riots that would characterize the Inauguration of the 45th President of the United States. DSA is one of the oldest and one of the few nationally organized socialists organizations so I had to get Maria's opinion on Bernie, the 2016 election and how the revolution continues. As usual there was lots of talk about millenialls and young voters, but more about the need to get out there and proudly serve to community as a socialist.

Resist 03: Brian Jones

On January 22nd, 2017 I attended a summit called "Inaugurate the Resistance" which was hosted by the Progressive Independent Party. It was held at a night club called the Kabin Lounge in Washington D.C. by Dupont Circle. It was a surreal event following a crazy couple of days in D.C. I met Brian Jones at the summit where he was representing the Justice Party. I found his insights to be really interesting and he could arrticulate the frustration of the moment so well so I asked him to do an interview for the project.  Resistance is a 4-part webseries from Stewis Media: https://vimeo.com/channels/resistanceseries   ...

Introducing the Resistance Companion Podcast

In January of 2017 we went to Washington D.C. to film the protests that were planned for the inauguration of the 45th President and used the moment as an opportunity to interview various leaders, activists and protesters in the movement to revolutionize American politics. Resistance is a 4-part webseries from Stewis Media: https://vimeo.com/channels/resistanceseries As with all documentaries, the interviews have to be cut up and rearranged in order to tell the story, but sometimes the context and conversation that happens in an interview can be equally as impactful and so we wanted to give you the audience the chance to hear the interviews to help broaden your knowledge of the issues, positions, organizations and people featured in the web series. ...
