No progressive change has ever come without mass struggle. From the 8-hour-day to the end of legal segregation, the demands of oppressed people who organized in the streets and in their workplaces forced the state to react. Reforms like these improve people’s lives, and the process of fighting for them increases the working class’s political consciousness and confidence.

Uprisings in Baltimore and Ferguson have shown that problems in society such as racism are embedded deep within the system. We need a revolution, a mass upheaval that replaces capitalism with a system based on human need. But is a revolution possible?
Join the Pilsen Branch of the International Socialist Organization for a public forum on why we need a revolution and what will it look like. RSVP here.
