Socialism for the 21st Century
A weekend of debate, discussion, and entertainment
June 14-17, 2007
Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare
"Workers of the world unite. You have nothing to lose but your chains, you have a world to win!"
These words from revolutionary socialist Karl Marx from the 19th century well describe the world‹and the hopes and dreams of the 21st century.
A world where millions suffer poverty yet with the potential to feed everyone many times over. A world ravaged by war and oppression, where the gap between rich and poor widens every day. A world that cries out for an alternative.
Socialism 2007 will bring together activists from the heart of various struggles – from soldiers¹ resistance to the war in Iraq to the fight to abolish the death penalty, from the struggle for immigrants rights and end to deportations to the fight for justice for the Palestinians.
Come to Socialism 2007 to learn about the hidden history of international working-class struggle – from the Flint sit-down strikes of 1937 to the Russian revolution of 1917 – and socialist analysis and theory.
Take part in more than 100 debates and discussions about changing the world: How we can end racism? What kind of organization do we need? Can the Democrats make a difference? What would a future socialist society look like?
Come meet other socialists and activists and help us start organizing for socialism in 21st century.
