Socialism 2012
Revolutionary politics, debate and entertainment
June 28-July 1, Chicago

“A GLOBAL rebellion of the oppressed against the oppressor, the exploited against the exploiter.” That's how the African American revolutionary Malcolm X characterized the international scene in 1965. But the description seems even more apt today.

After years of devastation in the clutches of the Great Recession, masses of people are discovering their own power to change the world. The Arab Spring has given birth to a global movement of Occupiers that has revived the politics of class struggle and revolution for the 21st century. Instead of the cutbacks, unemployment and repression that our rulers offer us, solidarity in struggle shows that “another world is possible.”

Each year, the Socialism conference brings together more than 1,500 scholars and activists from around the country to learn OUR history of class struggle and debate strategies for building a better world. Don't miss this chance to meet hundreds of others like you: committed fighters against a system of greed, racism, war, and oppression.

Featured Speakers:
Ali Abunimah • Ian Angus • Martha Biondi • Nicole Colson • Paul D’Amato • Neil Davidson • Sam Farber • Dan Georgakas • Glenn Greenwald • Arun Gupta • Brian Jones • Alan Maass • Marlene Martin • Scott McLemee • David McNally • China Miéville • Charlie Post • Michael Ratner • Boots Riley • Jen Roesch • Eric Ruder • Beryl Satter • Michael Schwartz • Elizabeth Schulte • Liliana Segura • Lance Selfa • Ahmed Shawki • Sharon Smith • Marvin Surkin • Lee Sustar • Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor • Sherry Wolf • Richard Wolff • Dave Zirin• and many more!
