*Building Mass Movements*

The history of social progress for working people has been a history of 
mass social movements. These social movements have struggled and 
achieved real change and developed revolutionary potential in the 
process. But how are they built and sustained, and how do they fail? The 
government in Washington and their masters on Wall Street will continue 
their generalized assault on youth and working people. And they will 
continue to damage the world we live in unless we develop successful 
strategies and tactics for fighting against them. That has always been 
the challenge. Please join with the Boston May Day Coalition in a 
discussion on Building Mass Movements! We will be taking up questions of 
strategy and tactics in the Occupy Boston Movement, the 2006 General 
Strike in Boston, the Poor Peoples’ Campaign, and other movements for 
change. Please share your ideas, questions, and energy.
