From The Socialist newspaper, 7 September 2006

Come to Socialism 2006

THE SYSTEM we live under, capitalism, means longer hours, poverty pay and worsening conditions for most people. In Britain, New Labour's drive to maximise their big-business friends' profits has seen the sell-off and privatisation of our public services. Capitalism means war, poverty and exploitation for billions across the globe while a tiny handful at the top gets richer and richer off our backs.

Greg Maughan

Socialism 2006 is about fighting back. Workers and youth worldwide are kicking back against this system. From PCS members in the civil service, fighting to defend jobs and conditions, to young people in France who defeated prime minister Villepin's attack on job security; ordinary people are increasingly standing up to the bosses and governments that make our lives hell.

Socialism 2006 agenda

If you're involved in campaigns against cuts and privatisation, if you've been on strike to defend your pay and conditions or if you're interested in the socialist alternative to this profit-driven system and how to get it, then Socialism 2006 is the place to be!

Socialism 2006 adSocialism 2006 will discuss a wide range of issues affecting the world we live in - from sessions on how to fight back against privatisation and how to defend manufacturing jobs to big business and football! You can find out more about the tide of revolt in Venezuela and Bolivia, as well as other struggles across the globe right now. We'll also look back at great workers' struggles of the past, such as Britain's 1926 General Strike, and learn the lessons for today.

Speakers at Socialism 2006 include Tommy Sheridan from Solidarity - Scotland's Socialist Movement (see article page 2). If you're angry about how the world works and are looking for an alternative, come to Socialism 2006 to find out about the fightback.

Rally for socialismIf you're already involved in struggle, Socialism 2006 is the perfect place to discuss your experiences and learn from others. As one person put it last year: "Getting together with socialists from all around the country gives you real hope for the future."

Last year, almost 1,000 workers, students, school students and community activists descended onto the event and this year looks set to be even bigger and better. You can make sure it is! Buy your ticket now! You can get them from Socialism 2006 organisers in your region or order them on-line.

Once you've done that, talk to other Socialist Party members, work colleagues, friends and family about Socialism 2006 and see if they want to come.

The ideas and struggles that we'll discuss at Socialism 2006 are an inspiration to all workers. They can give a clear framework to the fight against the exploitation that we all face under capitalism. So make sure no one misses out!
