For our next reading group on Wednesday we’ll be reading two articles, Everyday Ruptures: Putting Basebuilding on a Revolutionary Path by Teresa Kalisz and Base-Building: Activist Networking or Organizing the Unorganized? by Tim Horras.
The first is a general overview of the left, how we organize, and the different paths to socialism. It ties in well to our ongoing conversations about structure and vision as we figure out where we’re headed. The second article is a criticism of the non-profit and issue based organizing model and a basic introduction to basebuilding. The total length of the readings is about 10 pages.
Optional supplemental readings:
Base-Building and Workers’ Self-Inquiry
Revolution Is Not a Metaphor: A Response to Critics
Is Economic Struggle Enough?—A Critique of “Base Building”’
It’s All About That Base. The original reader that kicked off the basebuilding trend.
