Join the Peace and Freedom Party’s Alameda County chapter for the monthly Suds, Snacks and Socialism forum at the Starry Plough Pub in Berkeley (3101 Shattuck Avenue; click here for map) on Saturday, November 3. All are welcome to discuss the topic Socialism with Chinese Characteristics.

In 1850, in an essay on Chinese Socialism, Karl Marx wrote: “It may well be that Chinese socialism is related to European socialism just as Chinese philosophy is related to Hegelian philosophy. But it is an amusing fact that the oldest and most unshattered Empire on this earth has been pushed, in eight years, by the cotton ball of the English bourgeois toward the brink of a social upheaval that must have most profound consequences for civilisation.” 

For the forum, we are arranging a group of knowledgeable comrades to discuss the contemporary relevance of Marx’s words, including David Ewing of the US-China Peoples Friendship Association; Al Sargis, founder of the Friedrich Engels Institute of Marxist War and Military Analysis (FEIMWAMA); and Gerald Smith of the Oscar Grant Committee.
