Socialist workers to hold
conference in Ohio June 9-11
(front page)
Workers and young people from the United States and a number of other countries are organizing to participate in an international socialist education and active workers conference in Oberlin, Ohio, June 9-11. The Socialist Workers Party, which sponsors the gathering, invites participation from those who are engaged in activity to advance working-class interests and who want to learn more about and consider joining the communist movement.

The conference will culminate the international campaign to win 2,000 or more subscribers to the Militant newspaper. The experiences, accomplishments, and conclusions from that effort to sell the paper in working-class neighborhoods and on the job will be registered at the conference.

The conference will feature three days of discussion on world politics, the effects of the capitalist crisis on working people around the world, and a perspective to fight. There will be presentations by Jack Barnes, national secretary of the Socialist Workers Party, and other communist leaders; panels featuring socialist workers involved in resistance by working people to the capitalist assault and efforts to bring a revolutionary working-class perspective to workers and farmers; and educational classes on a variety of political questions.

On June 12, supporters of the communist movement will hold workshops to discuss their work in helping to maintain the publishing program of Pathfinder books.

Participation in the gathering is being organized by branches of the Socialist Workers Party in the United States and of Communist Leagues in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. Readers of the Militant interested in attending are urged to contact local organizers listed in the directory.
