The Failure of Capitalism & the Need for a Socialist System @ Omni Commons
Nov 9 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm
Join the Party for Socialism and Liberation for a day of workshops highlighting the contradictions of capitalism. From its sham elections to the destruction of the planet, to its wars on the working class and imperialist wars abroad, capitalism has proven itself time and time again to be an unjust and unstable system. For us to combat capitalism, we must organize and educate ourselves. Join us to fight for a true socialist future. More info:  www.PSLweb.org @pslbayarea67294
