*************************


A mass fightback movement is on the rise.

>From Egypt and Tunisia to Wisconsin and Ohio, workers are taking a stand against oppression and exploitation. These inspiring struggles show that when working people enter the political arena and engage in mass action, we become the most powerful agents for change.

But at the end of the day, what must be done to bring an end to the budget cuts, unemployment, racist police brutality, and the ongoing wars and occupations that afflict so many? Can reforms alone put the needs of poor and working people first when the entire economic system is fueled by the pursuit of maximum profits for banks, corporations and landlords? What can decisively turn this situation around?

ON SATURDAY, MAY 14, THE PARTY FOR SOCIALISM AND LIBERATION WILL HOLD ITS SECOND NEW ENGLAND CONFERENCE ON SOCIALISM IN BOSTON. COME LEARN ABOUT THE ALTERNATIVE TO CAPITALIST EXPLOITATION-AND WHAT WE CAN DO TO GET THERE.

Last year, nearly 100 people attended first-ever PSL conference in Boston, including seasoned activists and a large number of workers and students who came to find out more about socialism.

The conference will feature speakers, workshops, entertainment and discussion on a wide variety of topics ranging from the movements against war and occupation abroad to the attacks on working people at home.

Whether you are looking to organize against war, racism, sexism and capitalist exploitation, or if you just want to learn what socialism is all about, the May 14 New England Conference on Socialism has something for you.

Join us for presentations and discussion on a number of topics, including:

*  What is socialism and is it possible in the U.S.?
*  Lessons from Wisconsin: Resisting the anti-worker offensive
*  Fighting for jobs, education, housing, health care
*  The Egyptian revolution & U.S. imperialism in the Middle East
*  Overcoming racism and police brutality
*  Fighting sexism, anti-LGBT bigotry and anti-immigrant attacks
*  Cuba & Venezuela: Gains and challenges of socialist revolution
