Join a presentation and discussion with the author of "Turn the Guns Around: Mutinies, Soldier Revolts and Revolutions", John Catalinotto. He will be with us by Skype, but it will be fully interactive, with plenty of opportunity for discussion and questions.

From a review of the book by El Tee "For young revolutionaries picking up “Turn the Guns Around,” I would encourage us to remember that who we are in this period matters — particularly for LGBTQ youth, youth of color and other oppressed youth. And who we are should make us better at fighting for our class interests, should raise questions of how we organize, and not whether or not to organize.'

"We can only break the chain of command across all sectors of our society through unity and solidarity. Our class is made up of workers and oppressed people globally, of different nationalities, abilities, genders, sexualities and more. The wretched conditions of capitalism bind us together and make our class infinitely stronger and more revolutionary than the bosses who seek to make us inhuman.'

"We have picked up the guns in a different period, but in the legacy of revolutionary struggle no less. There will be unlikely alliances formed; there will be many people coming to consciousness but realizing that they can’t do it on their own; and we must be bold because we know that our vision for a socialist world is not only possible — it is inevitable. Catalinotto’s book tells the stories and the history of what will make it so."

It's not necessary to read the book in advance, but if you want, it's available on Kindle here for $1.99:

We'll also have copies for sale at the meeting.

The space is wheelchair accessible and we will provide refreshments.
