~ FORWARD WIDELY ~NEW ENGLAND MARXISM CONFERENCE

Capitalism is not working. Socialism is the alternative—a world organized for human need, not profit greed, 
where resources are controlled by and for the vast majority, instead of 
by a tiny rich minority. 

Millions of people are fighting back against the ills that this broken capitalist system has created. From Egypt to Wisconsin to Athens to Boston---people are standing up and fighting back. People are taking to the streets, occupying public squares and capital buildings and 
saying enough to the attack on ordinary working class people. 

Marxism 
provides a revolutionary understanding of society and provides the 
strategy for ridding society of exploitation and oppression once and for all. This conference will give activists a chance to discuss the 
burning questions that are arising during this current rise in struggle. People from around New England will have the opportunity to have core 
political discussions on Marxism, the importance of the working class 
and that not only is revolution needed, but that is very much possible.

If you 
fought against the criminal injustice system to save the life of Troy 
Davis, if you are energized and excited about the Occupy movement and 
the struggles from around the world or just sick and tired of this 
unjust society, a society with rampant unemployment, poverty, war, 
opression, exploitation, and environomental destruction--then this 
conference is for you!
