Just twelve years into the 21st century Marxism is facing unprecedented challenges. We have the biggest economic crisis since the 1930s with massive attacks on welfare and living standards. The world is reshaping out of all recognition and the ecological crisis is spinning out of control. The traditional workers parties are moving further to the right, women are at the sharp end of the crisis while the far right tries to whip up racism and Islamaphobia.
A spectacular revolt in the Arab world with the fall of dictatorships has put revolution on the streets and the rise of the occupy movement against the obscenities of capitalism inspires us to redouble our efforts. To meet these diverse challenges we need a Marxism of the 21st century which draws on the lessons of the past whilst embracing the challenges of the future.
For these reasons Socialist Resistance is organising this educational event. This seminar is open to members and supporters of Socialist Resistance.
