Sessions on Greece, France Britain, What sort of parties for the 21st century and Why working class political representation.
As the austerity bites deeper, the differences between the traditional parties of the left and the right have been dramatically reduced.
This has opened up a space to the left of social-democracy which the radical left and revolutionary Marxists have a duty to fill. This cannot be carried out by these currents continuing in their traditional forms without seeking new levels of unity. Broad pluralist parties of the left are needed to restore independent working class political representation and to help organise the resistance to austerity.
In the context of the deepest economic and ecological crisis of capitalism in the post war period and with continuing imperialist wars, the need for such parties is urgent.
This conference will hear from the experiences of Greece, France and Denmark and debate ideas about how to put a new broad party on the agenda of the left in Britain.
