5920 Second Avenue, Detroit, 5-8 P.M.
This Saturday the Communist Workers League will be hosting a class led by Carlos Santacruz, an organizer with the Poor People’s Campaign and the General Baker Institute, on the recent fascist surge in Brazil, and also focusing on the Landless Workers Movement or MST. Carlos Santacruz recently spent 3 months working with the MST and participating in a three month Latin American political theory course in Brazil at their school in Guararema, the Escola Nacional Florestan Fernandes. He was in Brazil during the presidential election of the right wing fascist Jair Bolsonaro. Our discussion will cover these movements in the global south as well as the socialist struggles in Brazil’s neighbor Venezuela, which is under threat from US interference and Bolsonaro’s regime.
Food and readings will be provided at the event. This event is free to the public and open to all, though donations for food and the building are greatly appreciated.
