Germany, Freiburg: The Freiburg Revolutionary Study Group starts a 6-month theory program

In July, the Freiburg Revolutionary Study Group will be starting a 6-month theory program. Our program offers an introduction to Marxism as it had developed through the unmatched revolutionary experiences in the Soviet Union and China. The program is equally suitable for both German and English speakers, Germans and non-Germans, beginners and advanced. We start in July with introductory topics and we will deepen our knowledge as the topics get more complex with each session. Anyone interested in Marxism and who wants to learn about it is welcome in our study group! We meet every second Sunday in the LiZ at 2 pm.
