Supporters of a socialist Catalan republic to address mass rallies in London

A Socialist Party press release

The events that have shaken Catalonia and the Spanish state have national and international implications.

These events, including Rajoy's decision to implement article 155 and suspend autonomy are being watched and discussed by millions the world over, especially those young people who are already seeking an alternative to repressive governments and austerity.

Socialism 2017 on 11&12 November will be attended by over a thousand students, trade unionists, Corbynistas, socialists and those who are socialist-curious, and the presence of socialists from the Spanish state to speak about the situation in Catalonia is a big attraction.

In July an organisation called Izquierda Revolucionaria which is based in the Spanish state, Venezuela and Mexico unified with the Socialist Party and the world organisation to which we're affiliated, the Committee for a Workers' International. It is from this organisation that IR general secretary Juan Ignacio Ramos comes.

Juan Ignacio will be joined in London by Coral Latorre who is the general secretary of the influential Sindicat d'Estudiants (SE - Student Union in Catalonia). The SE has called a student general strike for 25 and 26 October.

The editorial of the latest issue of the Socialist is on Catalonia.
