WHAT KIND OF REVOLUTION DO WE NEED?
A BROOKLYN BRANCH MEETING OF THE INTERNATIONAL SOCIALIST ORGANIZATION
For most people, it’s likely easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalist society. Despite this, political struggles from below throughout New York and across the country show that people not only want better lives, but are willing to fight for them, risking their jobs and livelihoods. But what kind of fight will it take to win a $15 minimum wage or to end the gutting of our public schools? What kind of fight will it take to end rape culture and sexual violence? What kind of struggle will we need to put an end to imperialist war and environmental destruction?
We are socialists because we think changing all of these things is possible. We believe revolution is possible and necessary, especially as world inequality worsens and the oceans warm. But it will take more than thinking change is possible. We need to organize and develop the movements that already exist so as to act upon this possibility.
Come join the International Socialist Organization (ISO) Brooklyn to hear more about the tradition of working class revolution from below and to discuss how we put an end to capitalism, before it puts an end to us.
