Socialism 2007 is a three-day event that will bring together socialists and other activists who are involved in struggles across the country – from opposing the war to organizing against the death penalty – and share a vision of rebuilding the left.
Last summer, some 1,500 people turned out in New York City. This year¹s conference in Chicago will feature activists and socialists from Central and Latin America, renowned activist writers and journalists, soldiers and veterans who are resisting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, prisoners and their families who are fighting for justice in the prison system, immigrants rights activists who are organizing against deportations and many more.
Included in the more than 100 events at Socialism 2007 are films, music and meetings on hidden history of international working-class struggle – from the Flint sit-down strikes of 1937 to the Russian revolution of 1917.
Come join us in Chicago on June 14-17, 2007, for Socialism 2007.
