9/24, Why you should be a socialist featuring Danny Katch



September 24, 7pm
135 Shillman Hall
Northeastern University

The racism of police violence. Climate change. Sexism and homophobia. The injustices of American society stand exposed for everyone to see. Yet, the many apologists for capitalism claim that whatever its defects, there is no alternative to a system that puts corporate greed ahead of human need. We disagree! Come to this meeting to discuss what socialism is and how you can get involved today in the struggle to change the world!
