Boston Socialist Unity Project conference aims at left cooperation
From People's World:
BOSTON - Local poet John Greenleaf Whittier once wrote, "So long as Boston shall Boston be, and her bay tides rise and fall, shall freedom stand in the Old South Church, and plead for the rights of all." Fittingly, this historic venue opened its doors on Saturday, April 30th, for the first conference of the Boston Socialist Unity Project (BSUP1). It was an extraordinary gathering of local and regional activists for a day full of learning and sharing, of theory and practice - all focused on building the movement for a society based on dignity and human rights for all.
Seeking to bring about unity through collective projects and educational events, BSUP1 was held under the theme: "Building Socialism. Building Our Movements." It brought together socialists and activists from a variety of organizations in the Boston area to discuss common areas of work and ways to strengthen each other's efforts in the long-term goal of replacing capitalism with a more just economic and social system.
