Online radical reading group Challenging the capitalist status quo: 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 into rebellion, and rebellion into a revolutionary transformation of society? Discuss these issues and more during this 11-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 21st century and the tasks of today’s revolutionaries. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. The coordinator will send out a full list of sessions and readings.
