Come to Socialism 2005 - the forum for real debate
New Labour is so terrified of debate that they did not allow discussion on Iraq at their party conference. Eighty-two year old delegate Walter Wolfgang's one word of criticism 'nonsense' was enough to have him physically thrown out the conference and detained under the terrorism act.
Socialism 2005 is an annual weekend of discussion and debate, taking place on 12-13 November, hosted by the Socialist Party. If you are involved in campaigning against New Labour's policies - be it in the anti-war movement, anti-privatisation campaigns, defending workers' wages and pension rights, or fighting New Labour's nuclear plans - Socialism 2005 will be an opportunity to discuss ideas that can take the struggle forward.
And at Socialism 2005 we welcome debate. Of course Socialist Party members at the event will hope to convince you of our ideas, but there will be plenty of opportunity for those who have questions or disagreements to put their point of view. In fact we are organising a whole series of debates and forums where speakers with a different point of view to ours, socialist and non-socialist, are invited to argue their case.
Organisations and individuals range from the Green Party, Respect, the Muslim Association of Britain and the Scottish Socialist Party to pro-war commentators like David Aaronovitch. For regular updates on who will be attending go to www.socialism2005.net.
