School of Many
The school's main focus is political education. We work with formal and informal groups to develop practical learning experiments to aid people and organizations in struggle.
This is a one day event for making educational workbooks about Palestine. We will come together to learn more about the struggle of and resistance of Palestinians. Then we will take what we've learned, reflect on it, and generate simple prompts and exercises for a workbook that others can learn from.
NEW DATE SOON!
A four week course that will explore the major themes in Marx. It will neither take the shape of a university seminar nor the form of a reading group premised on the discussion of individual interpretations of assigned readings. Instead, we will work through different kinds of learning exercises as a group with a goal of learning how we can understand and act with Marxism as a living, dialectically evolving science. Instead of memorizing its forms in order to recite them as dead dogmas, we will try to learn how to bring living Marxism into our political life. Things we might encounter: contradiction, dialectics, abstraction, materialism, private property, class struggle, surplus value, accumulation, capital, capitalism, technology, the critique of political economy and more.
No prior experience with Marxist theory will be necessary to participate. It is not necessary to own or buy any books.
DATES: 4 week course, Mondays 6-8 pm

WE WANT TO LEARN WITH OTHERS HOW TO ACT IN THE SERVICE OF STRUGGLE AND THEREFORE IN THE SERVICE OF PEOPLE, AND TO ADVANCE INTERNATIONAL PROLETARIANISM.

International Political Education with CCTE: Panama and India
Do you want to study the struggle as it exists in different nations, with comrades from around the world? Read and write together while learning about the traditions that fuel comrades in different parts of this earth. This will not be a lecture or a big group discussion. You don’t need any background in Marxist theory or knowledge of movements, all you need is a desire to learn and to contribute to the learning of the group. In the second session of each pair, we’ll have the chance to ask questions to comrades who are part of the struggle in Panama and India. In the end we will have a collection of notes that can be used as study guides to share with others.
All sessions will be held on Sunday and will run 1.5 hours.
