Linda Fischer: Global Crisis! Global Resistance!


Tuesday, September 13, 2011, 7:00 p.m. A wave of revolt is sweeping the world. In North Africa, uprisings topple dictators; in China, mass strikes defy repression; in Wisconsin, workers occupy the capitol building for weeks; and as European capitalism plunges deeper into crisis, workers and youth are responding with general strikes, mass occupations, and powerful protests. Meanwhile, the super-rich demand even more tax cuts, budget cuts, and layoffs. But a growing majority in Europe are declaring “We won’t pay for your crisis!"

Linda Fischer is a leading socialist activist from Hamburg, Germany and an organizer with the Committee for a Workers’ International, uniting socialists in over 40 countries around the world. As spokesperson for the youth organization of the Left Party (Germany’s third largest party) in Hamburg, Linda has led student strikes, anti-cuts movements, and anti-nuclear campaigns. She is on the National Committee of Sozialistische Alternative, the German affiliate of Socialist Alternative.

This event is organized by Boston Socialist Alternative.
