Socialism 2013 is a crucial event for all those wanting to fight back against a world in turmoil. The Con-Dems' brutal austerity continues, the world economy and Eurozone remain in crisis, revolution and counter-revolution chase each other in the Middle East and mass protests have erupted in Turkey, Brazil, South Africa and elsewhere.

At Socialism 2013, anti-cuts activists, anti-bedroom tax campaigners, trade unionists and youth and student activists will come together for a weekend of discussion and debate.

Socialism 2013 will be a showcase for the socialist alternative to crisis, cuts and capitalism.


Sessions include:

Fight the cuts

  • Will there be a general strike in Britain?
  • Can we save the NHS?
  • How can we beat the bedroom tax?

Introduction to Marxism

  • Marxist philosophy: using dialectical materialism
  • An introduction to Marxist economics
  • Historical materialism: how Marxists understand progress

New to socialism?

  • Is human nature too greedy for socialism?
  • Is the Russian revolution relevant today?
  • How could a planned economy work?

Anniversaries

  • 30 years on: Liverpool: a city that dared to fight
  • 20 years on: the murder of Stephen Lawrence, police racism, and the battle to stop the BNP
  • 75 years on: The founding of the fourth international

Other sessions include:

  • Syrian civil war: what programme should socialists put forward?
  • Egypt and Tunisia in turmoil
  • Are socialists feminists?
  • European elections: how can socialists best counter UKIP?
  • South Africa: birth of the Workers' and Socialist Party

Saturday night accommodation available - See website.
