Socialism 2013

spotSocialism 2013 – reflecting a thirst for ideas

Socialism 2013 was a powerful tonic for everyone who participated. Taking place on 2nd and 3rd November and organised by the Socialist Party, it comprised two large inspiring rallies and dozens of lively discussion sessions and forums. With around 1,000 people taking part over the weekend it isn’t surprising that many sessions were overflowing.
