July 4th weekend, members of the Gainesville International Socialist Organization will be attending Socialism 2011, Revolution in the Air (http://www.
socialismconference.org/). This annual conference, sponsored by the Center for Economic Research and Social Change, brings together activists, students, authors, professors, and revolutionaries to engage in political education and discussion, make connections with people around the world, learn from people’s struggles, and ultimately, promote social change throughout the world. This is an experience that you cannot miss! The convention will return passionate and informed activists back home, inspired and amped for grass roots activism! It is a wonderful opportunity not only for the individual, but for the community, and for network building across the United States and internationally.

Everywhere we look in the world there are revolutions and struggles that are challenging dictatorship, economic inequality, and oppression. From Cairo to Madison, these struggles show us that "another world is possible." But they also raise questions about what ideas, strategies, and tactics are necessary to carry the struggle forward, so join the Gainesville International Socialist Organization and come to Chicago!
