2009 Socialist Conferences

Capitalism isn't working. Socialism is the alternative--a world organized for human need, not profit, where resources are controlled by and for the vast majority, instead of by a tiny rich minority.

Real change depends on struggle and action by our side. These regional socialist conferences are dedicated to arming a new generation of rebels, activists and organizers with arguments and ideas for a revolutionary socialist alternative, learning our history of rebellion and resistance, and discussing strategies for building organization and winning struggles for real change. The meetings and workshops will include:

What Would Socialism Look Like? | U.S. Imperialism in the Obama Era | The Revolutionary Ideas of Karl Marx | What's Wrong with Capitalism | Black Liberation and Socialism | The Democratic Party: A Critical History | Afghanistan: Good War or Quagmire? | Why We Need a Revolutionary Party | Trotsky's Struggle Against Stalinism | The Russian Revolution and Its Significance Today | Socialists and the Struggles for Reforms | The Socialist Strategy for Liberation of the Oppressed | Capitalism and the Ecological Crisis | Eyewitness reports from the siege of Gaza and the coup in Honduras | and many more.
