Short URL: https://siliconvalleydsa.org/?p=5061
Silicon Valley DSA will be hosting some webinar reading groups during the quarantine that engage with our immediate political situation. We would like to encourage participation from others as well as ideas on readings and topics that will bring people in and build the socialist movement. Get in touch with the Political Education working group at firstname.lastname@example.org or on our Slack channel.
Our next meeting will be on Sunday, April 26at noon and will discuss recent trends in South American politics and some speculations about how the region could be key to breaking the impasse the coronavirus crisis has imposed on anti-capitalist movements worldwide. Pat Cabell, SVDSA member and researcher in Literature at UC Davis will give an overview of his time living in Bolivia during the last days of the indigenous-socialist Morales government and participating in social movements in the region. This will be followed by an extensive Q & A and open discussion on how to create an internationalist Left, and in particular how we in California might make common cause with the Latin American world.
All are welcome, special encouragement to those who want to learn about this fascinating part of the world, as well as those with experiences and knowledge to contribute. This talk is part of a new venture by the SVDSA Political Education working group. We are in need of new members and open to collaboration with anyone who is interested in learning and discussing how capitalism might end and bring about a less injust and miserable world. We will be sponsoring pop-up discussions, reading groups, and lectures in the weeks to come, via Zoom conferencing, in order to theorize the crisis, how we got here, and how to get out of it.
There are two optional and recommended readings. We want everybody to feel welcome even if you can’t do the readings. But they are here for your context and you will enjoy them!
- Origins of the Crisis: On the Coup in Bolivia
- EGTK, Bolivia’s aymara insurgency and the translator’s note
We look forward to seeing you there!
