Marxism 2013: Revolution In Our Time


May 29, 2013

General strikes in Indonesia, Greece, India and Spain; student strikes that  brought down the Quebec government; an Idle No More movement that has challenged colonialism in North America; a revolutionary process that continues to unfold, challening neoliberalism and imperialism in the Middle East.
