A Socialist Perspective Friday, June 17, 7:00 pm Mayday Bookstore 301 Cedar Ave, Minneapolis Hear: Jeff Mackler, National Secretary, Socialist Action Jeff Mackler has been a leading socialist activist for 50 years Already in its first decade, the 21st century has introduced or accelerated new imperialist wars, global warming and climate change, catastrophic industrial-based pollution, nuclear meltdown, pandemic diseases and a deepening inability of the capitalist system to meet basic human needs. Does the socialist perspective of a new world of abundance, free of violence, and based on human solidarity remain a real possibility? What can be done to advance the cause of human liberation?

CTUL Fundraiser Friday June 17th 9pm - Midnight Gethsemane Episcopal Church 905 4th Ave S (Downtown Minneapolis) Please note the change of address from the fist announcem ent. With the help of CTUL, workers who clean Cub Foods stores have been trying for over a year to engage Cub in a dialogue about fair wages and working conditions. Also with the help of CTUL, workers went on Hunger Strike for 12 days beginning at the end of May in a further effort to seek a dialogue. Now the parent company of Cub, SuperValu, is suing CTUL and its organizers personally. We need to raise money to help CTUL and its organizers to defend themselves against SuperValu's lawsuit and to provide further support to the movement for workplace fairness that CTUL has been leading. If you are not able to come but would like to make a donation, you can mail a check made out to CTUL to 2511 E.
