Socialism 2021 | A Summer School of Radical Ideas
Friday 4th – Saturday 5th June, on Zoom.
The Covid-19 crisis has tragically exposed the endemic inequality at the heart of the capitalist system, and its inability to sustain humanity on a just and sustainable basis.
Where there is injustice, however, there is resistance: dramatically demonstrated by the inspirational movements growing in places as diverse as Palestine, India, Colombia and Myanmar.
The Socialism 2021 Summer School will discuss the causes behind this crisis, and the ideas needed to find a way out.
Register today and join speakers from Ireland, India, Poland, Argentina, Nigeria, South Africa, Columbia, Myanmar and the US.
