Sponsored by the International Youth & Students For Social Equality and Socialist Equality Party Across the world, millions of people want to know what socialism is, as they search for solutions to rising poverty, social inequality, and the US’s never-ending wars worldwide. Some, including Senator Bernie Sanders, claim socialism is compatible with support for Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party. But to learn what socialism really is, one must examine the world-changing Russian Revolution of 1917. How did it forever alter history, giving rise to the most powerful and progressive social movements of the last century? How was the working class able to take power? Joseph Kishore, national secretary of the Socialist Equality Party, will review the causes, consequences and enduring significance of the Russian Revolution.

The Center for Peace and Conflict Studies of Wayne State University and Detroit WILPF are hosting Kozue Akibayashi, President of WILPF International. She will give a talk, "A Gendered Perspective on Peace and Security: The Experiences of Women in Okinawa." Okinawa is the southernmost archipelago of Japan and “home” of nearly 75% of the US military bases located in Japan. The experiences of the people of Okinawa who have been imposed to live a fence away from US military for over seven decades show a deep contradiction of the militarized security policies: Their livelihood and security is damaged by the presence of the US military. Among the negative impacts is sexual violence by US soldiers that has continued since 1945. The talk introduces the efforts of Okinawan women who have addressed the problem of sexual violence and analyzed the security policies from a gender perspective.
