Stand up for our future generations!

When: Thursday, December 20 from 5:30-6:45pm
Where: In the Deer Pile Space above City O’ City at 206 E. 13th Ave.

This teach-in will address experiences at the Tar Sands Blockade, what the movement needs, and how we can build this into a continental movement. It will cover Tar Sands actions that have already happened, future actions and national solidarity hopes. There are many corporations that stand to profit from the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline. These corporations and their role in all of this will also be addressed.

Led by Cat – long term environmental activist, with on-ground experience at the Tar Sand Blockade

Teach-In: Denver Tax

When: Thursday, December 20 from 6:00-8:00pm
Where: 1029 Santa Fe Drive, Denver, CO

Discussion about taxes can be wonky and loaded with lingo that doesn’t always make sense to people like us. Our in-house expert, Corrine Fowler, will break it down for us through an interactive and fun dialogue. This teach in is designed for people new to CPC’s economic justice work or people looking to brush up on their knowledge as we prepare for the 2013 legislative session.

This action will directly follow the Denver Flash mob. We’ll provide dinner and drinks. Please feel free to bring some food to share.

Teach-in: Is There an Alternative to Capitalism?

When: Tuesday, December 18 at 5:30-6:45pm
Where: In the Deer Pile Space above City O’ City at 206 E. 13th Ave.

From the Arab Spring to the protests against austerity in Greece and Spain, and from the Occupy Movement to discussions within the global justice movement, people are increasingly asking whether there is a viable alternative to capitalism. This is connected to a resurgence of interest in heretofore neglected aspects of Marx’s work. Join us for a discussion of whether Marx’s critique of capital points to an alternative to both “free market” capitalism and the totalitarian regimes that called themselves “communist” in the twentieth century.

Peter Hudis is Professor of Humanities and Philosophy at Oakton Community College. He is author of Marx’s Concept of the Alternative to Capitalism and is General Editor of The Complete Works of Rosa Luxemburg. He is a member of the International Marxist-Humanist Organization.
