New England Marxism Conference

We need a socialist alternative.

Millions of people have come to the understanding that capitalism isn’t working. And millions of people around the world- from mine workers in South Africa to students in Quebec to teachers in Chicago – are fighting back.

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. Join us!

    I understand the conference topics are working topics, but can we change the one topic to “roots of gender and sexual oppression”? For too long these issues have been separated and the marxist method does such a good job of giving us a framework to understanding the origins of both.
