June 11, 2013 8:00pmCapitalism Must Die: Stephanie McMillan Tuesday, June 11 @ 8pm People’s Arts Collective 121 College St. New Haven, CT
Stephanie McMillan will be at the College Street People’s Arts Collective on Tuesday, June 11 to present an easy-to-understand introduction to capitalism in the United States and the dangers of the system.
Stephanie McMillan, the cartoonist behind “Minimum Security” and “Code Green,” presents a basic introduction to what capitalism is, how it works, and why it’s a flawed system that isn’t working. This talk will be accompanied by cartoons and illustrations. Stephanie McMillan is also an organizer with the anti-capitalist/anti-imperialist group One Struggle.
Stephanie McMillan, a long-time activist, cartoonist, and the organizer behind the anti-capitalist/anti-imperialist group One Struggle, has waited decades for the American people to rise up. Inspired by uprisings across the globe, a new movement bursts onto the national scene against a capitalist system that denies people decent lives and puts the planet in jeopardy. McMillan’s book The Beginning of the American Fall documents the first few months of the precarious and contradictory movement with drawings, interviews, dialogue, description, and insightful reflections. It situates detailed personal experiences and representative narratives within the broad context of a truly unique and historical global conjuncture. This book will stand as a record of the emerging movement in accessible comic form. Her other cartoons include “Code Green” and “Minimum Security”, which will be published in its entirety this September.
Stephanie McMillan will be available for question and answer as well as book signings. To learn more about the event, visit the People’s Art Collective event page.
