Sunday Morning at the Marxist Library @ Online
Sep 27 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
Our Sunday morning programs are scheduled pretty much on a “first come, first served” basis and confirmed at our planning sessions. The opinions expressed are those of the speakers only and do not represent a group consensus on the issues by the members of ICSS. Our general practice is to allot at least half of the time to comradely discussion of the issues so that we include as many voices as practical . Check here close to the date each week for subject matter and Zoom info if not below: https://icssmarx.org/icss-sched-latest.html … Continued

Community Meeting On Police Brutality and the George Floyd Protests @ Willow Park
In the past four months, cities in the U.S. and around the world have risen up in rebellion against white supremacist terror from the police following the despicable murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and now the attempted murder of Jacob Blake.

One of the most devastating legacies of that crisis is that it was one of the largest transfers of wealth in this country’s history. And that wealth loss was experienced most greatly in Black and Latinx communities. As you also know, this transfer of wealth happens most prominently when people lose their businesses and when they lose their homes. Had the CARES act relief been equity … Continued
