This space is dedicated to the proposition that we need to know the history of the struggles on the left and of earlier progressive movements here and world-wide. If we can learn from the mistakes made in the past (as well as what went right) we can move forward in the future to create a more just and equitable society. We will be reviewing books, CDs, and movies we believe everyone needs to read, hear and look at as well as making commentary from time to time. Greg Green, site manager
We made history this year. In a historic moment, working people in Seattle have elected the first open socialist to a major city council in decades, Socialist Alternative member Kshama Sawant.
Kshama's victory has national and international implications and shows the wide opening available for the left and socialists in particular to make a huge political impact. This victory contains important lessons for struggles in the coming year like the Fight for 15, which is a national campaign to raise the minimum wage to $15/hr and was a key demand of Kshama's campaign.
Please join UMass Boston Socialist Alternative at 1 pm on Wednesday, December 11th for a discussion of the historic victory and what lies ahead.
