We need to express a thought regarding how the activist spent time in several countries across the world :

He spent it by

1. railing against the callousness and injustices of governments and the negligence of the upper classes

2. and trying to forge a transnational people’s movement

(A) railing against the callousness and injustices of governments, the negligence of the upper classes, and trying to forge a transnational people’s movement

"Railing" and "the negligence" are not parallel

(B) to rail against the callousness and injustices of governments and the negligence of the upper classes, and trying to forge a transnational people’s movement

"To rail against" is incorrect. We need a Verb-ing modifier

(C) railed against the callousness and injustices of governments, the negligence of the upper classes, and tried to forge a transnational people’s movement

"Railed against"is incorrect. We need a Verb-ing modifier.

(D) railing against the callousness and injustices of governments and the negligence of the upper classes, and trying to forge a transnational people’s movement

Correct

(E) railing against the callousness and injustices of governments, the neglecting of the upper classes, and trying to forge a transnational people’s movement

"the neglecting" is wrong.
