6/9: From the BP Disaster to Israel's Massacre -- World Politics in Review

Wed 6/9, 7-9pm
HUB 2nd floor lounge
Due to finals we are unable to have our usual room in the School for Social Work

The sum total of events that have taken place over the last six weeks is stunning -- Israel’s attack on the Freedom Flotilla; the Arizona laws and the protests movement against them; the BP oil spill still gushing into the Gulf; the Eurozone economic crisis which threatens another global recession; the Greek strikes against austerity -- all these events have exposed the system at its ugliest and politicized society in general. The current situation has further polarized US society, while increasing the radicalization already underway. 

Come discuss all these issues and what it means for organizing a radical left at UW and in the US as a whole.
