Simon Hannah – author of A History of the Labour Left (Pluto)
and Dave Kellaway – contributor to Socialist Resistance
Internationalism is at the heart of resisting the shift to the right in politics, of which Brexit is part. In Britain the left is divided in its response to Brexit and the danger from the right. The forthcoming general election is likely to see xenophobia, racism and nationalism being whipped up by the Tory right, the Brexit Party, and elements of the media. The speakers will introduce a discussion on the perspective of joining forces with other left movements across the EU in order to revolt against neoliberalism, and to end Fortress Europe rather than erecting Fortress UK.
