2012 Regional Marxism Conferences

2012 Regional Marxism Conferences

Millions of people have come to the understanding that capitalism is no longer working. And millions of people around the world–from mine workers in South Africa to students in Quebec to teachers in Chicago–are fighting back.

Marxism provides a revolutionary understanding and strategy for ridding society of exploitation and oppression once and for all. We want more than just resistance, we want to win. Please join the International Socialist Organization at regional conferences in cities around the country in October and November for a day of discussion and debate about the issues facing our movements today–and the long-term fight for a better world.
