Sarah Sachs-Eldridge, Socialist Party national organiser

Anger against the rigged capitalist system is a feature in every country now. A recent survey by Generation What found that 85% of responders in Britain believe that money and banks rule the world and over 80% think there is too much injustice.

But most significantly, when asked, would you actively participate in a large scale uprising against the generation in power if it happened in the next days or months? 60% in Europe said yes!

In the US the millions-strong protests against Trump were the most significant aspect of his first 100 days.

It was not enthusiasm for Trump but profound disillusionment with the political establishment that allowed him to pull off his unlikely victory.

Only 26% of the eligible voting population endorsed him at the ballot box, almost the same as the 24% who voted Tory in 2015 - far from a strong and stable base! It was Hillary Clinton, the 'Wall Street candidate', who decisively failed to offer voters a break from the rotten status quo.

The huge enthusiasm generated by Bernie Sanders in the US, by Jean-Luc Mélenchon in France, and by Jeremy Corbyn when he is fighting back, shows the enormous thirst that exists for an alternative to big business politicians.

Kshama Sawant - a Socialist Alternative city councillor in Seattle who led the successful struggle for the $15 minimum wage there - was among the most prominent figures to call on Sanders to resist the pressure to fall in line behind Clinton and to build instead a new political voice for the working class.

We are very proud that Kshama will be a keynote speaker at Socialism 2017 on 11 and 12 November alongside Socialist Party general secretary Peter Taaffe and many others from the socialist and working class movement. They will provide unique analysis of why the world is in crisis - but, most importantly, ideas of how to change it.
