Alternatives to Capitalism


Description: Join us as we recognize that, while we must work for social change within the system – such as stopping police forces from brutalizing people of color and fighting corporations that are polluting our environment – we will always have an uphill battle as long as capitalism continues to reward the bourgeoisie for devastating the working class and the environment. We will look at alternatives that offer hope.

Join the discussion with our panel:

Carolfrances Likins“Why Capitalism Can’t Work”: Carolfrances Likins, retired teacher and UTLA member, screenwriter and poet, and current ICUJP board member, who has traveled nine times to Cuba.






Bonnie“Why We Should Fight for Communism and Nothing Less”: Bonnie Blustein, a member of the editorial collective of Red Flag/Bandera Roja newspaper, the AFT 1521 Social Justice Committee, and a former ICUJP board member.






Michael Novick“Why Capitalism is Inherently Racist and Imperialistic – and Why Socialism is the Answer”: Michael Novick, retired teacher and UTLA member, chair of the local station board of KPFK, author of the book White Lies, White Power,* editor of “Turning the Tide,” and former ICUJP board member.






Manolo“Cuba, a Living Example of Socialism”: Manolo De Los Santos, co-coordinator of the People’s Summit for Democracy, co-executive director of the People’s Forum, researcher at Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research, and co-editor of the books, Viviremos: Venezuela vs. Hybrid War and Comrade of the Revolution: Selected Speeches of Fidel Castro.**
