In the fight for social justice, movements have treated the state as both an object of criticism and terrain of struggle for power.
Socialist and radical movements have had to navigate the contradiction of routine state violence, imperialism, and surveillance while recognizing that the working class often demands the state provide social welfare, particularly in times of crisis.
Join Spring on Friday, May 27th at 7 PM to discuss the nature of state violence, ruling class power, and socialist perspectives on organizing within and beyond the state for a better society.
