SOCIALISM 2012
Educate | Agitate | Occupy
 
June 28th - July 1st, 2012 
Crowne Plaza Hotel & Conference Center - Chicago O’Hare
 
 
“A GLOBAL rebellion of the oppressed against the oppressor, the exploited against the exploiter.” That’s how the African American revolutionary Malcolm X characterized the international scene shortly before he was assassinated in 1965—but the description is even more apt for today.

After years of devastation in the clutches of the Great Recession, masses of people are discovering their own power to change the world. The Arab Spring has given birth to a global movement of Occupiers and revived the politics of class struggle and revolution for the 21st century. Instead of the cutbacks, unemployment and repression that our rulers offer us, solidarity in struggle shows that “another world is possible.”
 
Each year, the Socialism conference brings together over 1,500 scholars and activists from around the country to learn OUR history of class struggle and debate strategies for building a better world. Don’t miss this chance to meet hundreds of others like you; committed fighters against a system of greed, racism, war, and oppression.
