Our weekly Discussion group. Here, we talk about current events and news, local activism, plan events and actions, and discuss our weekly reading. This weeks topic is feminism, and the readings are: 'Forms and methods of communist work among women' by the Third Congress of the Communist International, 'Women, the Bolsheviks and revolution,' an interview with Wendy Goldman, Chapter 9 of 'Class struggle and Women's liberation' by Tony Cliff, 'Women's liberation; the Marxist tradition' and 'The Russian Revolution and the emacipation of women'.
This is a bi-weekly reading group. Here, we read a discuss more contemporary leftist literature, with the goal of being accessible to everyone, from someone who is just hearing about leftism for the first time, to the most hardcore of marxists. This week, the book we will be reading is 'a brief history of neo-liberalism' by David Harvey. We meet in the upstairs portion of Poor Richard's in downtown Colorado Springs.
We are seeing the effects of imperialism now as much as we ever have. American foreign and economic policy continues to wreak havoc overseas, leading to humanitarian crises on a massive scale.
It is exactly this imperialist aggression that has led to the refugee crises and the influx of immigration into western nations. It is the fault of western imperialism that people feel like they have to flee their countries and as such, it is our responsibilty to welcome them.
Show up on the 26th to show everyone that they are welcome here and, under no conditions, will we stand idly by while attempts are made to disallow anyone from coming into the US. Come and show that we will work to end imperialism and liberate the people of every nation.
We will rally at city hall at 5pm before marching througout downtown, showing colorado springs that we stand with refugees and immigrants, and against racist imperialism.
Our weekly discussion group. This weeks topic is imperialism, and we will be reading 'Imperialism: The highest stage of capitalism' by Vladimir Lenin and 'Imperialism and The War' by Karl Kautsky. We will also have some discussion on current event's, local activism and other topics.
