The CME has been hosting events that are free and open to the public since 1975. Through the generosity of volunteers, we provide lectures, films, book talks, strategy meetings and discussion groups from global, national, and local socialists for anyone who believes that capitalism isn't working, and wants to find a better way. We regret that the CME is not accessible.

Screened by Zach George, CPUSA, Students and Youth for a New America, and Center for Marxist Education
In Killing Gaza, journalists Dan Cohen and Max Blumenthal documented Israel’s 2014 war on Gaza. Yet this film is much more than a documentary about Palestinian resilience and suffering. It is a chilling visual document of war crimes committed by the Israeli military, featuring direct testimony and evidence from the survivors.
"Max Blumenthal and Dan Cohen’s powerful new film, 'Killing Gaza,' offers an unflinching and moving portrait of a people largely abandoned by the outside world, struggling to endure." --Pulitzer-prize winning journalist, best-selling author and activist Chris Hedges.

History of the Communist Movement in Turkey, Part 2
Yusuf Gursey, Peace and Solidarity Commission, CPUSA
The Communist movement in Turkey has faced severe challenges since its founding shortly after the Russian Revolution. And yet it persists, despite splits, martial law, and Turkey's use by imperialism as a base against the Soviet Union and the world communist movement. Part I takes us from the founding of the Communist Party of Turkey in 1920 to 1960.
Part II, on Saturday August 7, will take us from the revolutionary upsurges in the 1960s to the martial law period, Gorbachev's negative influence, on to the present.
