Newcastle Marxists: Permanent revolution in Latin America




Trotsky's theory of permanent revolution explained how the capitalists in the colonial countries could not play a progressive role, but would instead be a barrier in the fight for agrarian reform, parliamentary democracy, and national independence.

Author of Permanent Revolution in Latin America, Jorge Martin, will be joining us to lead off a discussion on the history and significance of the revolutions and anti-imperialist struggles in Latin America over the past 60 years, particularly in Nicaragua, Cuba and Venezuela. This discussion is all the more important given that as of writing a coup attempt is in progress in Venezuela. #manosfueradevenezuela
