Socialist Party summer camp
Over the August bank holiday weekend, the Socialist Party's summer camp took place near the beautiful Epping Forest. Campers were treated to a variety of political discussions on Marxist economics, philosophy and historical materialism, as well as a discussion on the food industry.
Two evening rallies were held. A packed marquee on Saturday, including comrades from Belgium and the Sri Lankan Frontline Socialist Party, heard Peter Taaffe make the case for a 24-hour general strike. On Sunday night Hannah Sell spoke on economic crisis and struggles throughout Europe.
As well as a roaring campfire on both evenings, we also had local bluegrass band The One Tree Hillbillies play a lively set on the Sunday evening.
