FSP Fourth Friday Forums

Friday, August 28, 7:00 PM: Why Confront Ultra-Right Bigots? When anti-Jewish, white supremacist groups announce a rally or commit blatant racist acts, pundits often advise the public to “just ignore them” as a lunatic fringe. Meet two unionists who believe that mobilizing our communities to stand up and show unity in action is key to burying neo-fascists. Toni Mendicino demonstrated against the Klan when they rallied in support of the confederate flag July 18 in South Carolina. Daryle Washington protested a noose hanging in his San Francisco workplace at Recology. Nancy Reiko Kato, who was also in Columbia, S. Carolina, will present a slideshow of the demo against the KKK.

Trotsky’s Revolutionary Ideas – A Guide for Rebellious Mexico Today

From striking Oaxacan teachers and angry protesters for the disappeared Ayotzinapa 43, to the resistance of imprisoned Indigenous leader Nestora Salgado, Mexico today is a land in revolt. But how to translate rebellion into insurrection for lasting change? Bolshevik leader Leon Trotsky was an architect of the Russian Revolution along with Lenin. He drew from his experiences to develop principles for building socialist movements, ideas that still resonate. Discuss how his concepts are relevant to contemporary uprisings south of the border.
