“We thank all of our investors for making it possible, and will make the shirts available to them at below market prices”

The Marxist Student Association at Humbolt State University believes capitalism should not just be for capitalists. The student group recently launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise capital to fund its anti-capitalist t-shirt company. The group quickly reached its fundraising goals and has offered discounts on t-shirts to their investors.
The student group will also establish a multi-level marketing program similar to Amway. The family room-type sales meetings will be called Engels Engagements. They have tested them in dorm rooms with great success.
“What better way to promote anti-capitalism than by selling some t-shirts,” said Yahya Turner, Marketing Director for the Marxist Student Association.
