Online study group – Challenging the capitalist status quo: State and Revolution
November 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm PST
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Monday, repeating until December 7, 2020
A tidal wave of protest against racist police violence coinciding with a deadly pandemic and the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression are presenting social activists with urgent and profound political challenges.
- How do we understand and expose the role of the police and legal system in sustaining white male supremacy and class exploitation?
- What demands will most challenge the capitalist status quo, create meaningful change, and empower working and oppressed people?
- What will it take to transform protest into rebellion, and rebellion into a revolutionary transformation of society?
Discuss these issues and more during this 11-week remote study group. Lenin’s classic State and Revolution will be supplemented with readings that sharpen a focus on the capitalist state of the 20th century and the tasks of today’s revolutionaries.
First session: Monday, Sept 28, 7:00 to 8:30pm.
Reading: State and Revolution, Ch. 1: “Class Society and the State”
