>I'm writing to tell you about an event the ISO is sponsoring THIS Saturday
>(Aug. 5) at 4 PM at the Women's Building in San Francisco. The event is
>called "Chicago 1968 - Los Angeles 2000", and will feature veteran activists
>from the anti-war & social justice movements of the 1960s, as well as
>activists at the forefront of today's emerging movements.
>This event is in preparation for "D2K" -- the upcoming demonstrations in Los
>Angeles at the Democratic National Convention. We will be talking about
>important lessons (both strengths & weaknesses) of past struggles, and
>devising strategies for building a multi-racial movement to fight racism,
>corporate greed, and all the rotten aspects of a system set up to serve the
>interests of a tiny group at the top at the expense of the rest of us.
>Whether you are a socialist, anarchist, independent, "none of the above", or
>a Democrat fed up with the policies of Clinton/Gore, please bring your ideas
>and experience, and participate in this very important discussion.
>Speakers will include:
>* Bill Roberts - Anti-war activist, participant in the
>demonstrations against the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago,
>and founding member of the International Socialist Organization.
>* Lawrence Hayes - Former member of the Black Panther Party, incarcerated
>for 20 years for his political beliefs, and now an activist with the
>Campaign to End the Death Penalty
>* organizers from United Students Against Sweatshops and the Medea
>* striking healthcare and hotel workers from SEIU Local 250 and HERE Local2
>We will also have a display of political poster art from the world-wide
>stuggles of 1968 to the present.
>There will be information on the schedule of events for the D2k protests,
