Revolutionary Upsurge in North Africa & the Middle-East: Reports on Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen, Jordan and Implications for U.S. Imperialism

Millions of Egyptians have taken to the streets demanding an end to the dictatorial U.S.-backed regime of President Hosni Mubarak. The U.S. has poured billions of dollars to maintain the neo-colonial system in Egypt which has served as an outpost for the Pentagon and multi-national corporations.

In Tunisia, the masses of youth and workers have risen up and forced the puppet Ben Ali out of the country and created the conditions for a real fundamental change in this former French colony.

Join a political discussion on the implications of these developments and their impact on the working class struggle in the U.S. and around the world. What lessons can the workers and oppressed inside the U.S. learn from these revolutionary uprisings in North Africa and the mass demonstrations in Yemen and Jordan? How will this struggle impact the status of the settler colonial state of Israel and its allies in the region?
