OUR STUDY COURSE

 

Below you will find the links to readings that we study as part of our organizing. We uphold the words of Vladimir Lenin, that “without revolutionary theory there can be no revolutionary movement” and therefore make an effort to study theoretical works that have contributed to successful revolutionary movements. We also understand that revolutionary theory comes from the practice of organizing towards the revolution and we work to synthesize our organizing experiences into better theoretical understanding of the struggle. We break our study course into basic works that give a good introduction to Marxism, understanding of the world we live in and how to struggle to make it a better place; and an advanced course to keep improving the understanding of these things.
