Come and hear a talk and participate in a debate about the possibility of revolution in the USA. The brutality of the "war on terrorism" has become all too apparent. Civilians in Afghanistan and Palestine have been massacred by US made armaments, people in Iraq, Colombia, the Philippines and elsewhere await a similar onslaught. At home the constitution has been thrown away, along with environmental, and anti-nuclear treaties. People are being rounded up on the basis of ethnic background and held for months - without trial or prosecution. This has led many Americans to start asking questions about what they can do to make this world a better place. What is the alternative to a "war on terrorism"? Politicians speak cynically of making "realistic" reforms, while they slash social spending on health, education and welfare. Socialists have a different view of what is realistic. Socialists believe that another world is possible, one which is driven by the needs of the people not the demand for profit. But this world won't come about easily, those who currently hold power in our society have proved that they will not abandon it without a fight. And they weild a lot of force - the US has the largest military in the world. How in the face of these obstacles can a revolution in the US be possible? In a world in which 6 million children die every year of malnutrition and in a country where at least 12 percent of the people live below the poverty line, this is a crucial question.
