AFGHANISTAN RESISTS U.S. OCCUPATION
After 7 years of U.S. war and occupation, the growing resistance in Afghanistan is creating a crisis for the U.S. warmakers and their client government led by Hamid Karzai. Washington is scrambling to regain control, with the candidates of both the big business parties pledging to fortify the occupation. Meanwhile, the U.S. has stepped up its brazen military repression; in August a U.S. bombing killed at least 90 civilians. Why is the U.S. really in Afghanistan in the first place? What are the class dynamics of the resistance struggle in Afghanistan? Join us for analysis and discussion on the seventh anniversary of the start of the war.
THE STRUGGLE FOR IMMIGRANT RIGHTS
As the economy teeters, mass raids, deportations and other forms of repression against the immigrant community are on the rise. Join us for a report and discussion about the latest incidents of repression, how the capitalist class uses racism against immigrants both as a scapegoat and to depress wages for all workers, and how to get involved in building the upcoming demonstration for immigrant rights on October 12.
