First Teach-In Announced! March 23: Capitalism And You

9 Mar

We’re excited to announce the first in our series of teach-ins on capitalism, what it is, and how it works.  Our first event, Capitalism and You, will be held at the Vancouver Public Library on March 23rd.  Are you curious about exactly what it is that we Occupiers mean when we say that we’re protesting against “capitalism?” Or maybe you are an Occupier, and want to gain a clearer understanding of how we all got into this mess, and what some strategies might be for getting ourselves out.  How do all the diverse issues that the 99% are facing tie together, and what can we do about it?  How are we all effected by our economic system, and how can we stand together to make it more just, equitable, and sustainable?  Come on down to the VPL on March 23rd and let’s figure it out together!

Capitalism and You

forms of exploitation? How does capitalism shape you? Join us for two
short presentations, group discussion, and a short workshop.

    Reblogged this on The People's Library of Occupy Vancouver and commented:
    This teach-in on capitalism was sent to me by one of our lovely librarians. With our eviction a few months behind us, the significance of what we did is coming into greater focus. This is one of the first of many retrospectives by various groups, and we look forward to seeing you this Friday, and at the number of events to follow!
