CWI Summer School: "We stand on the eve of convulsive events, the greatest in world history"

"We stand on the eve of convulsive events, the greatest in world history, of which the mighty movements in these countries are the precursor."

This was how Peter Taaffe of the CWI's International Secretariat described the current international situation in the session at this year's CWI summer school on the 'Capitalist World in Turmoil - the crisis and the class struggle today'.

The mighty movements he referred to were the huge protests in Turkey, Brazil, Egypt and South Africa over the last 12 months, which have shown the colossal power of the masses once they move into action.

These have followed on from the protests against austerity in Europe of the last few years.
