Lower Mainland Action Update, May 2, 2008

Lower Mainland Action Update, May 2, 2008

In this Update:

1. Next Discussion Group
2. Left Film Night on Facebook
3. Upcoming Events

1. Next Discussion Group

Our discussion group on Monday was a success, we discussed topics such as local and world economics, the economic crisis of capitalism vs. the economies of socialist countries and those moving towards socialism. We did not begin discussion of the Activists Guide to Political Economy because the copies of the book were delayed in the mail. As a result, we will continue with that topic at our upcoming discussion group.

The reading will be "Activist's Guide to Political Economy" by our own comrade Jason Mann. Copies are on order currently and should be available soon. This will likely take a couple of discussion groups to get through, so start thinking about what you want to see us move on to next!

Once again, the discussion groups are open to all members of the Young Communist League, the Communist Party and guests who are genuinely interested in learning more about Communist philosophy, theory and practice and getting involved. They are a place for open discussion and debate where your thoughts can be heard and your questions can be answered. After the discussion group, those in attendance will decide what the next month’s topic will be.

Learn to Struggle, Struggle to Learn!
