Lunch provided

The Movement School for Revolutionaries is a highly participatory political education and strategic orientation workshop designed for those who recognize the need to restructure society to meet human needs stop the ecological crisis. So if you only believe incremental change is needed and/or possible, this isn’t a good fit for you. We are eager to work you on incremental changes later, but this day is about deep, structural change.

We will also talk about how (not “if”) revolutionaries should engage in electoral politics. So if you are a revolutionary who does not believe in engaging elections at all, this isn’t a good fit for you. We are eager to work you on social movement efforts later, but this school is designed for self-described revolutionaries who want to explore elections as one of several tactics.

Mel Figueroa (Campus AntiFascist Network), Emily Kawano (Solidarity Economy Network) and David Cobb (Cooperation Humboldt) will serve as facilitators.

The goals for the day are:
* Understand the larger social & historical context of our current social/ecological/economic crisis & political realignment
* Collaborate with fellow radicals & progressives across party line
* Build a united front of the Left to fight back against both neoliberalism and neofacism
* Develop strategies for engaging elections – and prepare to take and exercise state power
