From the Middle East to the American Midwest, working people have come together to make their own history. After years of devastation in the clutches of the Great Recession, masses of people are discovering their own power to change the world. The Arab Spring has given birth to a global movement of Occupiers that has revived the politics of class struggle and revolution for the 21st century. Instead of the cutbacks, unemployment and repression that our rulers offer us, solidarity in struggle shows that “another world is possible.”
Each year, the Socialism Conference brings together more than 1,500 scholars and activists from around the country to learn OUR history of class struggle and debate strategies for building a better world. Don't miss this chance to meet hundreds of others like you: committed fighters against a system of greed, racism, war, and oppression.
Our activists will be able to share their experiences with amazing speakers like musician Boots Riley, journalist Glenn Greenwald, writer Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, economist Richard Wolff, authors Dan Georgakas and Marvin Surkin, activists from Egypt and Greece, and many more. There will be over 100 presentations on such topics as: Where is the Egyptian Revolution Heading?, The Future of the Occupy Movement, Marxism and Imperialism, The Overpopulation Myth, The New War on Women, etc.
By helping our activists attend this event, it will help strengthen the politics and strategies of struggles in our community. With your support, ISO members can continue to organize things like state-wide actions against the budget cuts to public education and social services, labor solidarity with teachers, protests against the racist criminal justice system, and defense of women’s rights.
