This is a time when revolutionary forces that have been in the forefront
of the struggle against the capitalist crisis urgently need to find time
to analyze, review and strategize on how to approach this period of
growing hardship and great potential.
*Workers World Party urges you to join us on Nov. 14-15 at our national
conference in New York City.
We have real contributions to make to this much-needed discussion, based
on our 50 years of consistent revolutionary theory and practice. We are
proud to be celebrating Workers World Party's 50th anniversary at this
We are witnessing the biggest worldwide economic crisis of the
capitalist system since the Great Depression of the 1930s. The
tumultuous turn of events over the past year is unlike any that most of
us have experienced in our lifetime.
*In this global crisis, critical questions have been catapulted to the

around the world, be able to mount a real struggle in their own

This two-day conference will help us evaluate our experiences in
organizing in many cities against foreclosures, evictions, layoffs and
plant closings, and the united efforts to mobilize against the
multi-billion dollar bank bailout. It is an opportunity to assess our
organizing in Pittsburgh, before and during the G-20 Summit and to
consider the experiences of the workers' struggles at Republic Windows
and Doors in Chicago and Stella D'Oro in New York.
Considering the enormous opposition within Honduras to a U.S.-backed
coup, we will take up what Marxists in the United States can do to aid
the popular resistance. We will discuss international mass movements in
solidarity with Palestine. We will talk about how the anti-imperialist
movement can intervene in the increasingly contentious debate within the
ruling class, and raise independent demands to end the occupation of the
Middle East and Central Asia?
We want to thoughtfully consider how the deepening capitalist economic
crisis, the endless wars and occupations, and the development of the
class struggle, can contribute to forging greater unity against national
oppression, women's oppression and LGBT oppression in the United States.
The conference will feature plenaries, discussion groups, and strategy
sessions with activists from across the country representing many
different struggles. There will be music and spoken-word performances,
too. We are excited by the large number of youth and student activists
who plan to attend the conference. We are encouraged by the serious
union and community activists--who have been with us in the streets--who
are taking the time to join us in our deliberations.
*Plan now to join us on the weekend of November 14-15 in New York City*;
we need your participation in this important political and strategic
We are confident that a revolutionary, multinational working-class party
tested by decades of experience, will help the struggle for socialism to
re-emerge stronger, with advanced prospects, in the new political world
/*Hope to see you on Nov. 14-15. On to a great conference!*/
