SUNDAY MORNING AT THE MARXIST LIBRARY The Class Nature of the Chinese State, with Wadi’h Halabi Sun, May 15, 2022: 10:30am-12:30pm Pacific, 1:30-3:30 ET
What is China today? What about the Communist Party and the unions in China? Do they represent gains or setbacks for humanity?
Wadi’h Halabi of the CPUSA and the Center for Marxist Education will be discussing these and related questions. Halabi studies the material basis for revolutionary optimism, with a focus on developing and advancing the architecture to complete humanity’s transition from capitalism to socialism.
Leaders in China first invited Halabi in 2000, based on an economics column published in the People’s World. Dozens of invitations followed. A proposal Halabi made to China’s leaders helped reintegrate its Communist Party into Solidnet, which organizes annual meetings of the ‘official’ Communist parties worldwide. Another Halabi proposal led to the historic unionizing of all Walmart workers in China in 2006.
Halabi’s work in China has focused on changes in the world political economy and, especially, identifying and addressing the weaknesses that led to counter-revolution in the Soviet Union and other severe defeats for humanity. Halabi’s presentation draws from class lessons of Palestine, where he was born, before being driven out in 1948, first to Gaza, then Egypt and Lebanon, all in times of war or civil war.
