We know that at the forefront of social struggles we always find marginalised people, those most oppressed. How come it happens over and over again that when the fruits of success are reaped, the marginalised stay in the margins? Why are transgender persons of African-American and Latino-American origin still fighting for the public recognition of their crucial role in the Stonewall Riots? Why did poor lesbians, African-American lesbians, and African-American women get left behind in the feminist struggles of the 20th century? And above all, why, after all the historic disappointments, do the marginalised still persist in social struggles? Why is it crucial we do not give up and why is it crucial for wider social struggles to recognise the position of the marginalised? This will be discussed with guests and key actors in wider social struggles in Slovenia.
