Come out to Workers World Party Detroit Branch’s Marxism Class Series where we discuss the most important issues of the day from an internationalist and socialist perspective.
This week we are examining the reasons behind why genuine marxists and socialists unconditionally support and defend the struggles for self-determination, full equality, national liberation and socialism in the United States and around the world.
In order to achieve a complete understanding of the present situation we must become rooted in a historical materialist view of the critical role the oppressed nations have played in the movements against capitalism and imperialism. The recent developments in Standing Rock, North Dakota and Charlette, North Carolina illustrates the potential for broader revolutionary political activity which attract the attention and participation of millions.
During the class we will review excerpts from articles both contemporary and historical which shed light on the necessity to prepare for the rapidly evolving mass struggles among the nationally opressed and workers as a whole.
Reading materials will be provided for participants.
