• Idle No More activists linking historic First Nation and Native American struggles with those today.
• Electronic Intifada’a Ali Abunimah on the struggle for Palestine and the BDS movement.
These are a few of the many highlights from last year’s Socialism 2013. This annual summer conference brings out hundreds of socialists and radical activists from around the country to take part in important discussions about Marxism, working-class history, and the debates and strategies for organizing today—from the fight against the racist criminal justice system to the struggle of low-wage workers.
In 2014, we’re planning something different—we’re adding another day, which means more meetings and more opportunities to take part in discussions and hear important voices from the struggle.
So please save the dates and plan to join us next summer at Socialism 2014:
Thursday June 26 through Sunday June 29.
