Socialism 2013

Socialism 2013

While most of us have to struggle just to get by, the pockets of the rich and powerful in Britain are rapidly filling with wealth. In June - in one of those 'you couldn't make it up' moments - the MPs' pay body IPSA recommended an 11,000 a year pay rise for them! Since then MPs have been found out yet again claiming outrageous expenses.

Internationally, the struggle for a better future than what capitalism can provide is also hotting up. Look at Brazil, Turkey, Egypt...

Meanwhile the bloody situation in Syria shows once again capitalism's brutal face. As does the 40th anniversary of the bloody overthrow of the reformist Allende government by the western-backed Pinochet military coup.

In the pages of the Economist and Financial Times, leading capitalist thinkers continue to sweat - the situation "ain't too rosy" and they know it! They're sometimes even forced to admit it, after years of denial, "that Marx bloke - he was sort of right."

There's only one event this year that brings this all together and that's Socialism 2013. Come to Socialism and discuss the current struggles of ordinary people in Britain and internationally, and the history of our movement and the lessons it provides. Discussions at Socialism 2013 range from how to save the NHS; to Chile 1973; to Liverpool city council; to the founding of the Fourth International 75 years ago; to the basics of Marxism and what socialism would actually do.

Socialism 2013 is 'where it's at' this year to learn, debate and discuss and be part of the growing fight for international socialist change.
