Race, Class and Struggle in the US

By Passy - 24 October 2008 41

With it looking like Barack Obama will win the US Presidential election, Socialist Alternative is holding a special meeting on Race, Class and Struggle in the US.

Come along and discuss whether Obama will make any fundamental difference to the economic crisis and the drive of the US to intervene militarily around the world.

Race, Class and Struggle in the US.  6 pm Thursday 30 October room G 52 Haydon Allen Building ANU.

The week after, (Thursday 6 November), same time and same place, we will be discussing the new imperialist scramble for Africa.

So… Tylers… Are you suggesting that if the US does vote Obama in, they didn’t do it with their brains?

No, I’m suggesting it wouldn’t surprise me if they do NOT vote him in!

Also, are you suggesting that you’re content with the erudite decision of Australian voters to elect Howard for all those years??

Although Little Johnny and Bush were best mates, I think there is a VAST difference between the two of them when it comes to general intelligence, motives and damage done to the country.

Well, an infiltration does sound cool! I’ll go if I can find it in the ANU … curse that wretched place! We’ll need to wear RiotACT pins. Who doesn’t have one?

PM 1:59 pm 24 Oct 08

I’ll go.

It’s just a shame it isn’t on the 31st, when we could have all worn our Halloween costumes to the meeting 🙂

RiotACT infiltration of SA? Who’s with me?

I’d only attend to play agent provocateur.

But if they can’t organise a worthwhile pissup to discuss politics, how will they ever orchestrate the Inevitable Revolution?

I’m sure there are people in Canberra who really can vote in the US elections.

Mate I’d love to go along to a meeting. I always love chatting to Socialist Alternative on Market Day.

Tea is the universal panacea. I just might tell them that at the Socialist Alliance meeting!

PM 1:38 pm 24 Oct 08

I might go, Granny. I like tea and biscuits.

(Go Ron Paul!)

Granny 1:36 pm 24 Oct 08

Passy, what would you do if we all actually turned up? Surely you can’t really want us to come ….

jakez 1:27 pm 24 Oct 08

Barack Obama and John McCain are just two sides of the same schmata coin.

Bob Barr is where my (hypothetical) vote is going.

Although it would have been better if it were Ron Paul.

Go Barack Obama I say! I really wish we could (and sometimes think we should be able to) vote in the upcoming US elections. Considering that we are directly effected by their actions, and that it seems they cannot be trusted to vote using their brains (refer to the idiotic re-election of Bush), we should be able to do it for them.

I might go to this – could be a good discussion. Will we be able to vote there?! 😛

PM 12:49 pm 24 Oct 08

8:30pm – Tea & Biscuits.
9.00pm – The Revolution!
9.30pm – Beddibyes.

Tea and biscuits.
