Socialism 2014: Ideas to change the world

A weekend of discussion and debate on 8 & 9 November, central London

See www.socialism2014.net for further info and to book tickets

Capitalism has created a world in which just 85 people have as much wealth as the poorest half of humanity. While the rich get richer we are made to pay for a crisis of their system. The bosses and their politicians heap austerity upon our heads. This has not gone unchallenged.

From Britain to Brazil, Seattle to South Africa, working class people are fighting back to raise their living standards. If you want to hear from those at the sharp end of these struggles then Socialism 2014 is the place to be.

This weekend of discussion and debate will take place on 8 and 9 November in London. It will involve socialists, trade unionists and anti-cuts activists from Britain and across the world.

Rally speakers include:

  • Bakers' union president Ian Hodson
  • Recently elected Irish TD (MP) Ruth Coppinger
  • PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka
  • Socialist Party general secretary Peter Taaffe
  • and after the historic $15 minimum wage victory, don't miss Seattle's socialist councillor Kshama Sawant.

Kshama is a member of Socialist Alternative, co-thinkers of the Socialist Party in the USA. Her election with nearly 100,000 votes has sent shock waves across the world. Writing in the British press Will Hutton said simply "This does not happen in the US." But things are changing. Kshama's election victory has fed into a successful movement for a $15 an hour minimum wage and inspired working people the world over.
