The ideas of Karl Marx are proving to be as relevant as ever in explaining the chaos of capitalism, growing inequality, and the oppression of people in this country and around the world.
But Marx was not just a theorist. He was also an agitator and organizer. He was interested in understanding the world in order to change it.
Join us for this talk and discussion with Michael Löwy on the revolutionary ideas of Karl Marx, based on his book The Theory of Revolution in Young Marx.
Co-Sponsored by the Grad Center ISO and Haymarket Books. More info and RSVP at Facebook.

Transit: Bergen F/G, Hoyt-Schermerhorn A/C/G, Nevins St. 2/3/4/5, Atlantic Ave D/N/R
Ecological catastrophe and the preservation of a natural environment favorable to human life are incompatible with the expansive and destructive logic of the capitalist system.

Before the Flood: The Political Challenge of Ecosocialism
Ecosocialism and Democratic Planning
Ecosocial Struggles of Indigenous Peoples
Chico Mendes and the Brazilian Struggle for the Amazonian Forest
This event will celebrate the release of Ecosocialism: A Radical Alternative to Capitalist Catastrophe, Löwy’s fourth book with Haymarket.
Co-Sponsored by the System Change Not Climate Change; the Ecosocialist Coalition and Haymarket Books. More info and RSVP at Facebook.
