Take Up the Fight For Socialism - IYSSE Meeting
26 January, 2017
The International Youth and Students for Social Equality
Thursday January 26th, 7pm, Welker Room, Michigan Union Building
What is socialism?
What does it mean to turn to the working class?
What does a genuine socialist party and program look like?
School has resumed at colleges and universities throughout the
United States in the midst of an unprecedented political and social crisis. Economic inequality has reached a point where 8 people control the equivalent wealth of 3.5 billion people. For the first time since the cold war there are US troops at the border with Russia.
The 2016 election brought about the election of the most right-wing administration in US history. The White House cabinet is currently being filled with billionaires and war mongers, who will continue to tear apart social safety nets and expand US military action, both abroad and at home.
War, poverty and attacks on democratic rights are the inevitable outcome of the capitalist system, which subordinates all questions to the expansion of corporate profit and the wealth of the financial elite. The International Youth and Students for Social Equality (IYSSE) is an organization of students and youth around the world that insists chronic social problems, including the danger of war, can be solved only through an end to this system and a total reorganization of society on the basis of social needs, not private profit.
For this reason, the International Youth and Students for Social Equality at the University of Michigan calls on all students, workers and young people to join the struggle in building a revolutionary party of the working class, become learned in the history of the Russian revolution, understand your place in history and how it's tied to the most important event in the last 200 years.
