Capitalism in Crisis: The Case for Socialism
Wed 1/12 at 7pm
UW Savery Hall Room 155

We live in a world of poverty, war and environmental devastation. A world where living standards for working people plummet while an elite few enjoy lives of unbelievable wealth and power. An alternative to capitalism is desperately needed. The word "socialism" has returned to the mainstream of American political debate. But there are widespread misconceptions about what socialism is—and what it isn't. Socialism is really about the struggle to oppose discrimination in all its forms and to put the needs of working people before corporate profits.

Come hear from a panel of UW students who are involved with the ISO about why we consider ourselves Socialists, what organizing on campus is like, what we think the future holds, and how we can organize to use the vast resources of society to meet needs of humanity and the planet. Come with your ideas and questions about socialism and organizing with the ISO -- there will be lots of time for discussion.
