Detroit, MI - Supporters and friends of Fight Back! are building towards the U.S. Social Forum in Detroit on June 22-26. There will be thousands of activists, students and organizers for social change. Many are hoping to learn about building the people’s fight back during the current economic crisis. Students will be discussing how to oppose cutbacks to education while the White House spends billions on wars and occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Latin America solidarity leaders from across the country will speak about stopping seven new U.S. bases in Colombia and the spread of U.S. militarism.

On Friday, June 25 the Freedom Road Socialist Organization and the L.A. Labor Community Strategy Center are doing a workshop to discuss strategy for revolution in the U.S. It promises to spark lively discussion, based on mutual respect for each other’s organizing experiences. Come along and look for Fight Back! at the Freedom Road Socialist Organization table and other locations. Below is a list of workshops about some of the peoples’ struggles and movements covered by Fight Back!
