Marx Was Right!
Thu. Aug. 21 @ 10:45am
University of Ottawa Lamoureux Hall (LMX) 390
The present crisis was not supposed to happen. Economists believed the market could solve all problems, and that the Great Depression would never be repeated. Marx’s prediction of a crisis of overproduction and of working class revolution had been consigned to the dustbin of history. That was then. The wheel of history has turned 180 degrees since 2008.
Workers’ Control and Nationalization
Fri. Aug. 22 @ 2:45pm
University of Ottawa Morisset Hall (MRT) 212
We are living in an era of capitalist crisis, austerity, unemployment and workplace closures. At the same time, workers around the world are entering into historic struggles to fight back against austerity and capitalism. What is the relevance of the struggle for workers’ control, workers’ management and nationalization? What can we learn from living examples in Venezuela, Brazil and Greece?
Greece on the Brink — The crisis of capitalism and the socialist solution
Fri. Aug. 22 @ 5:00pm
University of Ottawa Fauteux Hall (FTX) 227
Canada documentary première and eyewitness report: Greece has become a focal point in Europe. It is both where the economic crisis has acquired its most acute form and where the revolutionary backlash by the masses has been the most advanced. The Canadian première of “Greece on Brink” will include a Q&A session from an eyewitness to the labour and revolutionary struggles in Greece.
