Via: NYC-ISO

Millions of people have come to the understanding that capitalism is no longer working. And millions of people around the world​ are fighting back​—from ​the struggle against police violence in ​Ferguson, ​to the Occupation of Gaza​, to the ​struggle against climate change​.

Marxism provides a revolutionary understanding and strategy for ridding society of exploitation and oppression once and for all. We want more than just resistance, we want to win. Please join the International Socialist Organization for a day of discussion and debate ​on Marxist theory, history, and politics. Our aim is to understand the world in order to change it!
