507 55th St
Throughout the history of capitalism, wealthy elites from a handful of countries have managed to impose their dominance across the world, subjecting people, land, and resources in the Global South to intense forms of exploitation. Socialists call this system imperialism, and see it as a central feature of the capitalist global economy. But it’s often difficult to see how exactly imperialism works, who it benefits, or how it manages to maintain control.
Join East Bay DSA on Tuesday, May 7th as we discuss imperialism in the 21st century, its roots in European colonialism, and as we set the stage for a future discussion about tearing it down.
