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.
