University of Michigan – Flint, Murchie Science Building, Room 306,

Three years after the poisoning of the water, Flint residents confront an entrenched political establishment, determined to “move forward” to “normalcy” by denying the needs of the population.

Russian Revolution Centenary Lecture – Lenin’s Return to Russia and the April Theses

May 6 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
WSWS.org/1917

The sudden eruption of the February Revolution occurred while Lenin was living in exile in Switzerland. In his absence, the Bolshevik Party, led by Stalin and Kamenev, advocated support for the new bourgeois Provisional Government and for the continuation of Russia’s participation in the world war.

The Trump administration is simultaneously escalating war threats against North Korea and Syria. A full war against either country could unleash a direct conflict involving China or Russia, both of which are armed with nuclear weapons. While the catastrophic consequences are being hidden from the American people, media commentators have begun to warn that “nuclear war has become thinkable again,” and that the conflict in North Korea risks “nuclear miscalculation.” Any war involving nuclear weapons would kill tens of millions…
