1pm - Can the working class unite? - Dana Blachard
- What is the root cause of oppression under capitalism? Can the working class overcome sexism, racism, homophobia, and transphobia in order to unite and fight against our common enemy - the bankers, bosses and ruling class politicians?

3:30pm - Marxism and political organization - Todd Chretien
- What kind of revolutionary organization is needed in order to achieve Socialism? How will a revolutionary party be formed and on what political basis?ᅠ

November 20, 1910 is the date customarily regarded as the start of the Mexican Revolution, one of the great revolutionary struggles of the 20th Century, even if it resulted in only a limited, partial, victory for the oppressed masses. Why isn't this even mentioned by most of the left groups having events on this centennial day, especially given that the situation in Mexico now is potentially as explosive as it was in 1910?
