ESF - A Socialist World Is Possible

Joe Higgins, Socialist Party TD (MP) for Dublin West, has been confirmed as the main speaker for the Socialist Party rally being held during the European Social Forum (ESF) next month in London.

Naomi Byron

The ESF (14-17 October) is already attracting interest - over 200 people a day are registering to attend on the ESF website. Thousands are expected from all over Europe, and participants will come from all over the world.

Many of the people that took part in the anti-war movement are looking for ways to change the way things are run in Britain and internationally and will be attracted to an event offering discussions against globalisation and the multinational companies. They will be hoping that the ESF will offer the opportunity to sample different ideas, organisations and movements.

The range will be limited during the official programme, however, as political parties of any size are excluded from the platforms of nearly all of the main rallies and it is likely that socialist ideas will not be put forward in them.

Members of the Socialist Party, Socialist Students and International Socialist Resistance (ISR) are helping to advertise the ESF. We will be among a small number of organisations raising socialist ideas where possible within the event - by organising extra meetings, stalls and action. It is vital that every Socialist Party branch prepares to come and help with our participation.

The university Freshers' Fairs are an ideal opportunity to get more young people to go to the ESF. Student unions should be asked to book transport to London if they haven't already.

Leaflets and posters to build for the ESF, which advertise the Socialist Party rally, are already available. Note that the first 20,000 people to register to attend the ESF before 1 October are being offered free Travelcards for 15-17 October (which are worth 19.80).
