More InfoFrom Egypt to Wisconsin, working-class people are rising up against injustice. Massive strikes and demonstrations rocked Europe’s ruling elites last year. Popular uprisings have toppled and challenged dictators and “free-market” policies across the Arab world. Now workers and youth in Wisconsin and across the U.S. have begun to fight back against budget cuts in education and healthcare enacted by both Republicans and Democrats. Come hear an inspiring speaker and join this important discussion about how we can challenge the corporate agenda and fight for a better world.

National Speaking Tour: Cindy Sheehan

Following her son’s death in Iraq, Sheehan gained national prominence in 2005 as thousands joined her protest camp outside President Bush’s vacation ranch in Texas. Now among the nation’s foremost antiwar voices, Sheehan has written books and spoken extensively to crowds of thousands. After the Democrats won control of Congress in 2006 only to continue Bush’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Sheehan broke from the Democratic Party. In 2008 Sheehan challenged then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for Congress, receiving an impressive 17% of the vote as an Independent candidate. Following speaking tours in Venezuela and Europe, Sheehan has increasingly spoken out against capitalism and in support of democratic socialism.
