Socialist Conference Postponed to Dec. 6-7
All Out for Nov 15 Rally to Defend Gay Marriage

The International Socialist Organization has decided to postpone the Northern California Socialist Conference which was scheduled to take place on November 15 & 16 at San Francisco City College in order to participate in the Saturday, November 15 demonstration to defend the right to Gay Marriage. We feel this is the right thing to do for two primary reasons.



Are you sick of the mainstream media's excuses for war, economic crisis, racism, sexism, and homophobia? Do you want explanations that don't attempt to justify inequalities and imperialism, but seek to expose them? Come to this conference and discuss left wing ideas with hundreds of like minded people looking for change and to build the fight-back. There will be talks and discussions on many aspects of the crises that face us and debates about what we can do about them.
There will be workshops all day Saturday
with an evening panel featuring a conversation with un embedded journalist Dahr Jamail titled "The Wars and the Anti-war Movement".
The Sunday Sessions will take an in-depth look at the theory, history, and effects of the current economic crisis.

You can register for the conference at

Or you can buy tickets at the following bookstores:

Modern Times Bookstore, 888 Valencia Street (between 19th and 20th), San Francisco

City Lights, 261 Columbus Avenue at Broadway, San Francisco

Moe's Books, 2476 Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley

IMO, postponing an entire 2-day socialist conference for a half-day demo about gay marriage at the time of the greatest capitalist crisis in 70 years is crazy, or perhaps just an indication of how seriously the ISO takes the fight against capitalism.

We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
