International Rally 27 January
Fighting for a socialist world
A GREAT international rally on Saturday 27 January in central London will feature leading fighters from around the world speaking about the struggles against poverty, war and exploitation, and the struggle for a socialist alternative.
Hear eyewitness reports on:
- Mass struggles in Venezuela, Brazil and across Latin America.
- Struggles of workers and peasants, and the need to combat ethnic and national discrimination in Sri Lanka, Pakistan and India.
- Struggles of women against brutal oppression.
- The savage consequences of capitalism and imperialism in Nigeria and throughout Africa.
These speakers are leading participants in these struggles - workers and socialist fighters. And the meeting will discuss the fight to change the world, and put the case for a socialist alternative.
The rally is organised by the Committee for a Workers' International (CWI) - a world socialist organisation to which the Socialist Party is affiliated. The CWI organises in 40 different countries. It will be a brilliant opportunity to hear from some of the participants in the recent CWI World Congress.
