Charting a Course for the Coming Fall: Political and Organizational Perspectives

Today's world is defined by the worst economic crisis since the 1930s and the one-sided class war that has been waged for the last 40 years. For working people it has created a space for questions about the capitalist system and uncertain conditions amidst a sense of hope that if we organize ourselves, we can change things. Join the Boston Branch of the International Socialist Organization for a series of three meetings to politically understand the current state of world affairs and how we can organize ourselves for the current and coming struggles to create a world without war, oppression, and poverty.

All three meetings will be held at the People’s Haymarket Fund located at 42 Seaverns Avenue in Jamaica Plain. Everyone is welcome to participate in the discussion.
