  • Reading Capital Politically | Online Reading Group

    2020-06-04 @ 20:00 - 21:30

    This May, the Political Education Committee will be leading an online reading group working through Harry Cleaver’s "Reading Capital Politically"—a classic text that reinterprets the opening chapter of Marx’s Capital volume 1 not only as an economic theory, but as a political tool for workers, care-providers, students, activists, the unemployed, and other non-waged workers. Join us for weekly Zoom calls from 8:00-9:30pm, starting on May 21.

    May 21 -- Preface and chapter 1 (pp. 9-81)
    May 28 -- Chapters 2 through 4 (pp. 81-135)
    June 4 -- Chapters 5 and 6 (pp. 135-172)

    The text available as a free pdf at: https://libcom.org/files/cleaver-reading_capital_politically.pdf

    Meetings can easily be too long, contentious, and unproductive- fortunately, we have tools to help meetings remain democratic and worthwhile. These practices are known as parliamentary procedure, and the standard version of it that we often use in Pittsburgh DSA is called Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised.

    In this training, you’ll learn the elements of Robert’s Rules that are most useful to running smaller meetings, how to use Robert’s Rules to solve problems, and how to easily look up all the things in Robert’s Rules that, thankfully, you absolutely do not need to memorize.
