Since 2011, countries around the world have had historic upsurges and have gained serious insight into the dynamics of anti-capitalist struggle in this period. Advance the Struggle along with La Peña Second Generation proudly presents a monthly Skype series with revolutionaries from across the globe to discuss these massive social movements.
The fourth session will involve militants from Greece who have been actively engaged in the anti-austerity movement, participated in the From the Greek Streets blog, and have contributed to the book Revolt and Crisis in Greece. The event will take place on Saturday June 28th, 12:30pm at La Peña Cultural Center (3105 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley, CA). Below is a description of the event and the leaflets for the series. Hope to see you there!
Between spectacle and resistance: reflections on struggling in Greece today.
The event will include reflections on the current state of affairs of the wider antagonist movement in Greece today: its recent struggles, its shortcomings, its potential ways forward. What lessons do six years of continuous struggle against police and neoliberal repression leave us with? And what may be the potential ways forward?

UPDATE on organizing against the West Oakland Specific Plan:
The city of Oakland’s process for approving the WOSP requires it to be approved at the Planning Commission on June 11th, then moved to the Committee for Economic Development on July 8th, and finally to City Council on July 15th.
Blocking its passage at each of these stages is crucial. Below are a number of flyers that have been developed by community members and organizers who are opposed to WOSP for the role it will play in gentrifying the city and displacing residents of Oakland.
