Revolutionary on the Daily
Revolutionary on the Daily: Visions for New Societies, Revolutionaries Organizing Ourselves Friday, June 25 2012, Detroit.
- Most of us are struggling by day for small victories to help our people organize and survive, and dreaming by night about a better world. This workshop is a space to gather with other non-sectarian revolutionaries to explore our visions in creative ways. Through play and discussion this session will provide a space to reflect on the challenges facing left organizers who are committed to bringing about revolutionary transformation. Let's think deeply through the following questions together: What is our revolutionary vision for a new society (as distinct from a reformist vision)? What is the role of revolutionary orgs/collectives/individuals/political communities to get us to that new society? How does being a revolutionary affect or inform our daily practice? We’ll have a gameshow featuring amazing organizers from around the country, play a spectrum game so participants can pitch in their thoughts, build virtual neighborhoods from cardboard and paint that weave together our visions of a new society, and have small and large group discussions.
Featuring: Lenina Nadal from the New York Study Group, Joanna Misnik from Solidarity, Tony Zaragoza from League of Revolutionaries for a New America, Eric Odell from Freedom Road Socialist Organization/OSCL, Shiu-Ming Cheer and Luz Elena Henao from LA COiL, and speakers from Labor Community Strategy Center, Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, and Bring the Ruckus.
