STUDY GROUP: STATE AND REVOLUTION
A tidal wave of protest against racist police violence coinciding with a deadly pandemic and the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression are presenting social activists with urgent and profound political challenges.
How do we understand and expose the role of the police and legal system in sustaining white male supremacy and class exploitation?
What demands will most challenge the capitalist status quo, create meaningful change, and empower working and oppressed people?
What will it take to transform protest in rebellion, and rebellion into a revolutionary transformation of society?
These issues and more will be taken on during this 10-week remote study group. Lenin’s classic State and Revolution will be supplemented with readings that sharpen a focus on the capitalist state of the 20th century and the tasks of today’s revolutionaries.
