FIST discussion group tackles the economic crisis

The youth group FIST—Fight Imperialism, Stand Together—held an engaging discussion group focusing on the economic crisis on June 26 in New York. Questions raised at the meeting included: What stage of overproduction are we now in? What is speculation? How does it factor into the economic crisis? How did the working class respond to the Great Depression? What is the fundamental contradiction in capitalism? What do we do about all this?

FIST is facilitating a weekly discussion group on a wide range of issues. Future meetings will address the struggle in Africa on July 11 and LGBT oppression on July 14. Discussions begin at 6 p.m. To get involved, email or call 212-627-2994.
