(Before It's News)

West Chester, PA – On March 4, Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) hosted a workshop titled “Socialism 101: Students, Socialism & The Revolution” at West Chester University of Pennsylvania. The workshop included an introduction to socialist theory, followed by discussion on applying socialist theory to the student movement.

“In the Trump era of declining capitalism and overt oppression, student organizing becomes more important than ever. Students are in the unique position where they have the ability and time to learn socialist theories while directly putting them into practice through a campus-based campaign. Plus, the world that Trump is creating is going to be left behind to the youth to fix. Students are perfectly positioned to affect expansive and rapid change, which we need now more than ever,” Michela Martinazzi of FRSO said about the students’ role in organizing for socialism and against Trump’s agenda.

The workshop reviewed socialism, Marxism-Leninism, capitalism, imperialism, national liberation of oppressed nationalities, working class struggle, organizing in the anti-war movement and organizing in the student movement.

There was much discussion on the material reality of what socialism has looked like from the past to present, analyzing anti-communist propaganda and addressing misconceptions about socialism.

“While they are in school, students and youth must become anti-imperialists, and take up the struggles of the multinational working class and oppressed nationalities and put those demands in the forefront, working to advance the interests of the people and land blows against the ruling class and their cronies.” said Ian Gallagher of FRSO, highlighting the importance of organizing in the student movement.
