From The Socialist newspaper, 31 August 2001

Come to Socialism 2001

Saturday 27 October, 3 - 8 pm

Sunday 28 October, 10am - 5 pm

At the University of London Union (ULU), Malet Street, London, WC1

Socialism 2001 is a weekend of discussion and debate organised by the Socialist Party. It is an opportunity for anyone who is angry at the poverty and inequality in society, for anyone who is fighting for better pay or for free education to come together to debate socialist ideas.

We will be looking at past and present struggles of the working class and the lessons we can learn from them. You don't have to be a socialist, or agree with everything or anything that we say, to take part in, and enjoy, Socialism 2001. If you want to hear a different side of the story - come along to Socialism 2001.
