Socialist Appeal and the International Marxist Tendency invite you to REVOLUTION! - a three day festival of Marxist ideas.

Across the world, it is clear that the status quo has failed and the system has broken: from the refugee crisis to the earthquake of Brexit; from the ever-growing inequality in society to the civil war inside the Labour Party; and from the rise of Trump in the USA to the seemingly endless conflict in Syria.

Now more than ever, therefore, there is a need for revolutionary change and a socialist alternative.

Join us to discuss the lessons of history and the relevance of Marx's ideas in offering a way forward.


FRIDAY 21st OCTOBER - SUNDAY 23rd OCTOBER
Venue: Student Central (formerly ULU), Malet Street, London
