The economic turmoil ripping through capitalism is matched by the crisis of ideas presented by those who rule over us. At Marxism 2013 socialists and activists will come together with some of the best speakers on the left internationally to explore the answers to the burning questions we face.
Can the revolutionary movements in the Arab world offer an alternative to capitalism? Is it possible to avert the coming climate catastrophe? What caused the economic meltdown and how could it end? Will the unions fight over austerity in Britain? What can we learn from the struggles of the past and how should we organise the fightback today?
Marxism 2013 will take place at a time of intense debate in the resistance to austerity and the fight against capitalism. Crucial arguments about both how the struggle can go forward and how to organise are being thrown up and new questions are being raised. Marxism 2013 aims to be a key arena for the debates and discussions on the left.
Come to Marxism 2013 and join the debate.
