Please come and discuss the national question with us.
To best prepare yourself for the debate we suggest you read the following two pamphlets.
Nation or Class by the ICC - http://en.internationalism.org/pamphlets/nationorclass/
Against Nationalism by AF - http://libcom.org/library/against-nationalism
