The eruption of mass demonstrations involving millions of people only one day after the inauguration of Donald Trump as president of the United States is politically and historically unprecedented. It is an initial indication of the immense social upheavals to come.

The incoming administration is the true face of the capitalist oligarchy. Trump is not an aberration in an otherwise peaceful and democratic society, but the outcome of decades of social counter-revolution, growing inequality and unending war, under both Democrats and Republicans. The only social force that can settle accounts with this oligarchy is a politically conscious working class, armed with a socialist and internationalist program.

Come hear representatives of the Socialist Equality Party and International Youth and Students for Social Equality speak on the significance of Trump’s election and the political perspective that must guide opposition to war, inequality and dictatorship.
