REGIONAL MARXISM CONFERENCES
http://socialistworker.org/marxism-conferences-2011

Atlanta | Austin | Berkeley, Calif. | Boston | Chicago | Madison | New York City | Portland, Ore. | San Diego | Washington, D.C.

Are you inspired by Occupy Wall Street? Did you join the struggle for Troy Davis? Are you part of protests about the housing crisis in your city? Were you in the streets for SlutWalk to say "Enough is enough"?

Millions of people have come to the understanding that capitalism is no longer working. And millions of people around the world--from Cairo to Athens to New York City--are fighting back.

Marxism provides a revolutionary understanding of society and a strategy for getting rid of exploitation and oppression once and for all. The International Socialist Organization is organizing regional conferences in cities around the country in October and November to discuss what Marxists say about race, class and revolution--and the fight for a better world.

Meetings and courses include:

Why Marx was right
Why the working class can change society
-- No power greater: Marxism and the centrality of class
-- The 1934 Minneapolis Teamsters strike: A case study in working-class power
-- The changing working class and the future of the labor movement
Black liberation
-- Where does racism come from?
-- The Black freedom struggle: From Martin Luther King to the Black Panthers
-- Black liberation and socialism
Marxism and oppression
-- The roots of racial oppression
-- Theories of women's oppression
-- Can the working class liberate the oppressed?
Marxism, crisis and class struggle
-- How capitalism works: What makes capitalism tick?
-- How capitalism fails: The Marxist theory of crisis
-- Crisis, exploitation and class struggle
