Come to Socialism 2006!
LAST WEEK'S Labour Party conference was the last that Tony Blair will attend as party leader and prime minister. Since 1997, Blair's New Labour have overseen massive cuts in the NHS, further privatisation of council housing, attacks on our public services and the brutal war and occupation in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Blair is now one of the most hated prime ministers ever. Aside from the carefully choreographed ovation that he received at conference, no one will be sorry to see the back of this rabid warmonger and privateer. It's clear that he'll soon be gone - but what's the alternative?
Sessions at the Socialist Party's weekend of debate, Socialism 2006, will discuss where Labour is going, whether it can be reclaimed or whether we need to fight for a new mass party for working people and how we go about getting this.
There'll also be sessions on how to fight back against privatisation and the decimation of the British manufacturing industry, as well as other sessions where we'll discuss New Labour's Britain and how to organise the fightback against cuts, closure and privatisation.
For workers and activists searching for an antidote to the moribund politics of New Labour, Socialism 2006 is an essential event to attend.
