From
 the Middle East to the American Midwest, working people have come 
together to make their own history. In 2011, mass mobilizations have 
ousted seemingly unmovable dictatorships, and hundreds of thousands of 
U.S. workers have rallied to draw the line against union busting and 
scapegoating of public-sector workers for budget crises unleashed by 
Wall Street’s disastrous profit seeking.
After
 years of devastation in the clutches of the Great Recession, masses of 
people are discovering their power to change the world. The movements 
sweeping the Middle East, from Tunis to Cairo to Tripoli, have revived 
the politics of class struggle and revolution for the 21st century. 
Instead of cutbacks, unemployment and repression that our rulers offer 
us, solidarity in struggle shows that "another world is possible."
Socialism
 2011 will provide an unparalleled opportunity for new and veteran 
activists and scholars to discuss what these events mean for our world, 
and for our own movements today.
Last
 year, more than 1,500 people turned out to explore the history of 
struggles of ordinary people, to learn about radical figures who led 
social movements and to debate theoretical questions that can help us 
change the world.
Don’t 
miss the chance to meet, talk and hang out with hundreds of others like 
you who want to build an alternative to a system of greed, racism, war 
and oppression.What you’ll find at Socialism 2011: More than 100 meetings, a bookfair, films, entertainment, and parties.
