12/11, Justice denied in Ferguson: How can we stop legal lynching?

Thursday, December 11, 7pm
358 Washington St, Dorchester, MA
Fields Corner or #23 from Ruggles Station

The grand jury's decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for the August 9 murder of Ferguson resident Mike Brown Is simultaneously shocking and predictable. The global spotlight on Ferguson makes the decision to let Wilson walk all the more surprising, but the ugly reality is that police routinely murder Black and Brown people across the U.S. without facing consequences. The number of people killed by police last year was the highest number in 20 years, according to the FBI itself.

Come to this meeting to discuss why the police are so out of control and what we can do to demand justice.

11/1: Halloween Party

A Dance Party to Stop...


The Monsters of the Market

They walk among us as normal humans, but nestled in the husk of the capitalist system they reside -- the monsters of the market!

Like zombies, these creatures of the 1% live off our flesh, blood, and sweat -- while imposing vicious cuts and ghastly treatments upon the poor and working-class.

But another Halloween, and another world, is possible. Join the International Socialist Organization for a radical celebration of the season, with costumes, a cash bar, and other holiday frights.

2. Building the ISO Regional Marxism Day School, Amherst, Nov. 15 [60 mins]
 
Join this week's ISO meeting as we discuss the legacy of racism and anti-racist struggle in the U.S. Today, a Black man is murdered by the police every 28 hours. Since the Police murder of Mike Brown in Ferguson, thousands have protested nationally along with nearly daily protests in Ferguson itself. What lessons can we learn from the struggle against slavery in the U.S. that can help in building movements against racism and police brutality today?

We will also be discussing our orientation and goals for our upcoming Marxism Day School on November 15.
