Public Meeting
Wednesday, August 21,2013 7 pm
"What is Socialism"
	While he word "socialism" has been receiving much attention, much of  
its meaning has been distorted by the corporate media and right-wing  
politicians.  If you are interested in finding what socialism really  
is and what socialists do, please join us for this presentation and  
discussion.

Progressive film night
Sunday, August 25,2013 6–8 pm
Automatic Kalashnikov  (2000, 52 minutes)
		Cheap, easy to handle and durable under extreme conditions, the  
invention of the AK-47 assault rifle changed the course of the second  
half of the twentieth century. German filmmakers Axel Engstfeld and  
Herbert Habersack visit Mikhail T. Kalashnikov, the AK-47's 80-year- 
old designer now living in obscurity in the Ural Mountains, and  
document how his creation became the weapon of choice of warriors in  
conflicts around the globe, from Taliban resistance guerrillas in  
Afghanistan to street criminals in Los Angeles. Kalashnikov’s primary  
aspiration was to develop a dependable weapon to defend the borders  
of his country.
