The Class Roots of the American Revolution
A Reply to the Tea Party
Thursday, October 20 at 7pm
WHERE: Mayday Books (301 Cedar Ave. in Minneapolis, Below Midwest

The Tea Party claims the traditions of the American Revolution as its own.
But the fact is, they don't have a clue about the real class struggles that
took place in the late 1700s. The American Revolution was much more than
flag waving and barbecues on the 4th of July. Nor was it a mere colonial

It was in fact a profound political and social revolution, carried out by
the ordinary working masses, turned the world upside down. Come learn more
about the real class roots of the American Revolution, which provides
important lessons for workers and youth as we prepare for the next American
Revolution: the socialist revolution. John Peterson of the Workers
International League and editor of Socialist Appeal magazine will introduce
the discussion. This event is free and open to the public. Bring your
questions, ideas, and contributions!

Nygaard/propaganda 10.20 7pm

Free and open to the public. Come and bring a friend.

Hennepin Avenue United Methodist Church,  511 Groveland Avenue, Minneapolis
(at Lyndale and Hennepin). Park in church lot. Plenty of free paarking
When: Thursday, October 20, 7:00-9:00 p.m.

Beginning with an original definition of propaganda and contrasting it with
the received definition, this presentation will introduce the concepts of
“Overt” and “Deep” propaganda, “Propaganda ABCs,” and an “Investment Theory
of Ideology in the Media.” Following a brief analysis of public relations
theory, the group will practice finding propaganda in current media, discuss
their findings and learn how to most effectively counter propaganda in the
modern context.

Presenter: JEFF NYGAARD. A self-described working-class intellectual, Jeff,
who hails from a small town in southern Minnesota, has been a
Minneapolis-based activist, writer, editor, and teacher for the past 35
years. He has published his own almost weekly Newsletter, Nygaard Notes:
Independent Periodic News and Analysis, since 1998 [a remarkably thoughtful
and original blog (Ed.)] and has appeared frequently on radio and television
in the Twin Cities area and elsewhere. His activism was tied originally to
issues of racism, but has since expanded to class privilege, union issues,
gender bias, and other concerns.
