LA: Breaking the Chains - Socialist Perspective on Women's Liberation

June 09, 2017 at 7:30pm - 9pm

It’s that time again! Join us for a discussion of the latest issue of “Breaking the Chains: A Socialist Perspective on Women’s Liberation”. This issue focuses on immigration and the struggle against Trump’s attacks on our immigrant communities.

The Trump agenda constitutes an all out attack on the working class with an unrelenting attack against immigrant workers front and center. Every legislative and executive assault from the Trump administration has been met with resistance and solidarity from people from all backgrounds.

Immigration and the struggle of undocumented workers is a feminist issue because women are immigrant workers and experience particular forms of oppression and exploitation as women. The liberation of women is integrally tied to the liberation of the working class as a whole, through socialist revolution.

This issue dissects how modern capitalism enables women’s oppression and the exploitation of immigrant workers and explores how immigration is central to monopoly capitalism. We also address head on how LGBTQ rights are tied to immigrant rights in an interview with Jennicet Gutierrez, Mexican transgender activist. We examine the resistance against attacks on immigrant rights on an individual, national, and international level and call to build an organized, militant front.

Please join us on Friday, June 9th at 7:30 pm at 2936 W. 8th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90005 for a night of discussion as well as an opportunity to pick up your copy of this radical magazine. 

Limited parking on Westmoreland/8th. Red and Purple line to Wilshire/Vermont station.
