This meeting is for You!

April 7, 7pm Room 26 School of Social Work
Case for Socialism & Intro to the ISO Meeting

The misery that millions of people around the world face is rooted in the society we live in--capitalism, where the few who rule profit from the labor of the vast majority of the population. A world free of exploitation where people come before profit -- Socialism -- is not only possible but worth fighting for.  The ISO is committed to building a left alternative to this world of racism,  poverty, war, and environmental destruction; to building Socialism from the bottom up through the struggles of ordinary people against exploitation, oppression, and injustice.

We have branches and members in more than 65 cities across the country --  The UW ISO Branch is part of the Student Worker Coalition fighting the budget cuts at UW, we participate in S.O.L.E. & Seattle OUTProtest in the struggle for LGBT rights, contribute to Ruckus, as well as the fight city-wide against teacher layoffs and school closures

At this week's meeting we'll  talk not just about socialism -- what its about and how we can get  there -- but also how the ISO is organized what we're involved in locally and how you can get involved. There will be lots of time for an informal Q&A so bring any questions you may have and  get involved!
