Socialist youth launch study groups

The youth group FIST—Fight Imperialism Stand Together—has initiated summer study groups on important political issues. The first was held on May 22, discussing the topic “The Elections and Revolution.”

The young comrades of FIST, along with other young people and activists from other organizations and earlier generations, read articles from Workers World newspaper on the racism of the Rodham-Clinton campaign against Obama and the high prices of food and gas, in conjunction with shrinking wages and the destruction of the environment due to the capitalist mode of production.

Altogether, more than 20 people engaged in the hearty discussion, and the great majority returned the following week to discuss the disasters in Myanmar and China and the reaction of U.S. imperialism towards these and Hurricanes Katrina/Rita.

The discussions will be held weekly, every Thursday from 6 to 8:30 pm at the Solidarity Center in Manhattan, 55 W. 17th Street, 5th floor, but occasionally held in a park, weather permitting. All are invited, whether you identify as youth or not. For more information, contact FIST at 212-627-2994, e-mail FIST@workers.org or visit http://www.fistyouth.wordpress.com.
