From The Socialist newspaper, 6 September 2002

Socialism 2002

SOCIALISM 2002 is now only eight weeks away. It is a weekend of discussion and debate, hosted by the Socialist Party, about how best we can fight back against capitalism.

Hannah Sell

Crucially we will also be discussing the need for a socialist alternative to the nightmare of capitalism and what form such an alternative should take.

Every reader of The Socialist should make a point of attending Socialism 2002. If you haven't booked your place yet then fill in the form below today.

However, Socialism 2002 is not only for current readers of The Socialist and members of the Socialist Party.

It is the best possible event for people new to socialist ideas to attend if they want to find out more. Make a point of inviting fellow trade unionists and anti-capitalists, friends, relatives and acquaintances to come along. On Socialist Party stalls invite everyone who stops to attend.

If you need more leaflets just give the office a ring on 020 8988 8767.
