Marxist Student Union

The Marxist Student Union is up and running at the U of M!  Thanks to the comrades involved in getting all of the paperwork and signatures needed.  A spectre is haunting Memphis - the spectre of communism!!

Check out the Marxist Student Union's brand spankin' new website here.

Memphis politics watch - the Harris campaign.

The Lee Harris campaign for the City Council District 7 seat provides Memphis with the most serious progressive candidate to City office in many years.  Finally we have the sort of individual who can articulate progressive positions in a manner that is forthright, compelling, competent and carried with a great deal of integrity.  Harris is the best thing to have happened in Memphis politics in a long time, and we Memphis comrades are happy to support him.

Check out Harris' Facebook page here.  And his campaign website here.
