ORGANIZING FOR REVOLUTION
Driven by an insatiable appetite for ever-greater profits regardless of social cost, capitalism is on a collision course with the people of the world and the planet itself. Imperialist war; deepening unemployment and poverty; deteriorating health care, housing and education; racism, discrimination and violence based on gender and sexual orientation; environmental destruction -- all are inevitable products of the capitalist system itself.
For the great majority of people in the world, including tens of millions of workers in the United States, conditions of life and work are worsening. There is no prospect that this situation can or will be turned around under the existing system. We need a revolution. But what does that mean? How do we organize for a revolution?
Guest speaker Brian Becker is a founder and leader of the Party for Socialism and Liberation and the national coordinator of the ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) Coalition.
