This panel discussion from the Institute for Social Ecology 2019 Vancouver Intensive explores the interrelation between social movement organizing, electoral work, and a broader strategy of building popular power. It asks how we can think strategically about the strengths and weaknesses of these various modes, and how they can be used together to create an ecology of tactics. Vancouver City Councillor Jean Swanson speaks about her experience as a lifelong anti-poverty activist who entered city government, and the challenges she faces in this role. COPE organizer Derrick O’Keefe discusses the formation of the Vancouver Tenants Union in 2017 and the two subsequent electoral campaigns at the municipal level by the Coalition of Progressive Electors Party (COPE) and how this experience relates to municipalist politics. Shawn Vulliez talks about synthesizing prefigurative, electoral/entryist, and revolutionary politics in B.C. and beyond.
