What Will the 21st Century Bring for the Human Race? A Socialist
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?

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

Also with the help of CTUL, workers went on Hunger Strike for 12 days

the parent company of Cub, SuperValu, is suing CTUL and its organizers

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.
