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.
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.
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!
