“Students 4 Democratic Socialism” Comes to Campus

By The Beacon Staff

Started by Maximillian Salunek and Tiffanie Bentley, Students 4 Democratic Socialism (S4), is a student organization whose goal is to empower and educate students in grass-roots organizing. The first two seeds of activism have already sprouted.

On Saturday the 19th, the International Women’s Strike called for the formation of “Feminism for the 99%’ contingents to participate in this year’s Women’s Marches around the world. Students 4 Democratic Socialism (S4) co-hosted this contingent in the Portland’s Women’s March this Saturday.

Two students have started s study group based on the book The Meaning of Marxism by Paul D’Amato. The students meet every Saturday from 3-5pm in Preble Room 205. The study group is open to all students, faculty, and staff who are interested in Marxist-Leninist theory. This week they will be discussing Chapters 5-6, although if you are just curious about the group and want to check it out, you don’t have to do the reading. Just join them.
