On September 10th, 2016, thirty-five students and community members gathered from Florida and North Carolina to participate in a day school hosted by members of the Student Commission of the Freedom Road Socialist Organization/FightBack!). The event consisted of presentations on revolutionary theory and how students apply it to their activism.
Fern Figueroa of the FRSO opened the event saying, “Students can play a special role in uniting and organizing sectors of people by learning revolutionary theory, engaging in their own struggle on campus, and ultimately by joining history's greatest revolutionary class - the working class.”
Tampa Bay FRSO member Danya Zituni explained, “The role of the university under this capitalist system is to indoctrinate students with the ideas of the ruling class. By mobilizing students to fight, we can learn about the nature of the system we are up against and what methods are effective against it.”
Taina Pantoja, of Tampa Bay SDS said, “It’s important to understand that Marxist-Leninist theory provides us with a guide for making actual material change.”
The event ended with a speech by Tallahassee FRSO member Zachary Schultz who said, “The Day School represents a real development in the revolutionary movement among students. Students are wanting and ready to take up Marxism-Leninism, the theory of revolution. Students are learning and organizing to build the movements of oppressed nationalities and workers to overthrow the capitalists.”
