IN THE richest country on earth, thousands have died in the wake of hurricane Katrina due to the Bush regime's incompetent rescue operation. Thousands more have been left sick, starving and destitute.
The world is an unstable, chaotic place wracked by war, poverty and terrorism. But a new generation looking for answers to the world's problems are joining struggles and movements fighting for change worldwide.
Socialism 2005, the Socialist Party's annual weekend of debate and discussion, will go some way to provide the answers and point a way forward for those wanting to struggle against inequality, low pay, injustice, capitalism, terror and war.
The rally on the Saturday evening will have speakers from the Gate Gourmet dispute, Peter Taaffe, general secretary of the Socialist Party, Joe Higgins, Socialist Party TD (MP) in the Irish republic and international guests.
If you want to be part of the discussions to map the way forward for the working class and young people in Britain and across the world, make sure you come to this event.
Seminars will include debates on the trade unions, the environment, topical and historical subjects. Tickets are available from Socialist Party local organisers or you can call our national office on 020 8988 8777. Fuller details of the programme and speakers will be available soon in the socialist and at www.socialism2005.net
Socialist Party members should commit themselves now to coming and buy their ticket in the next few days. Your branch should draw up a list of who you are going to ask to come along. Town centre campaigning stalls should have leaflets and posters advertising Socialism 2005.
Every Socialist Party member works alongside people in the trade unions, in the workplace, college, school or community. We are involved in fighting low pay, conditions at work, education cuts, privatisation of public services and campaigning against the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq.
All of these people should be asked to come to Socialism 2005. Everybody should be involved in selling tickets for this event, to make this the biggest and best event that the Socialist Party has organised.
