The Arab revolutions of 2011-12 have ushered in an era of upheaval and revolution around the world, as seen especially in the Occupy movement. The speakers will discuss the achievements and the contradictions of the Arab revolutions in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Syria, including their emergence as a new type of revolution, the dangers of authoritarianism (both nationalist and Islamist), and possibilities for the future.  They will also assess the response of Marxist-Humanists to these developments, both theoretically and practically.
