For years each horrific mass shooting has followedby a loud but largely empty partisan debate: Republicans and Democrats pointfingers at each other while avoiding uncomfortable questions about why guns andgun violence are so prevalent in a country founded on stolen land and stolenbodies and maintained with the violence of mass incarceration and globalempire. But the protest movement started by Parkland students has the potentialto change this depressing pattern. This talk will look at how a socialistframework can help guide the many student protesters who are looking to connectgun violence to this country’s underlying oppressive structures.
