Socialism 2013

About Socialism 2013


Fight against cuts, crisis and capitalism!

London 2-3rd November

A weekend of discussion and debate hosted by the Socialist Party


For all the latest information, go to www.socialism2013.org


Socialism 2013 is a crucial event for all those wanting to fight back against a world in turmoil. The Con-Dems' brutal austerity continues, the world economy and Eurozone remain in crisis, revolution and counter-revolution chase each other in the Middle East and mass protests have erupted in Turkey, Brazil, South Africa and elsewhere.

At Socialism 2013, anti-cuts activists, anti-bedroom tax campaigners, trade unionists and youth and student activists will come together for a weekend of discussion and debate.

Socialism 2013 will be a showcase for the socialist alternative to crisis, cuts and capitalism.

We are living in a time of revolts, rebellions and revolutions. Across Europe, millions of workers have been involved in general strikes against brutal austerity unleashed by the bosses and their political lap dogs.

Cyprus has been rocked by the latest reverberations of the economic crisis as working class people are expected to pay the price for a crisis they didn't create.

In South Africa the working class has found its voice after last year's miners' strike with the foundation of the Workers and Socialist Party. All over the world working class and young people are fighting for a future.

But what kind of future are we fighting for? How can we take the fight-back forward? To win we need to arm the movement with the best ideas, strategy and an alternative to a capitalist system that is rotten to the core.

At Socialism 2013, anti-austerity activists and working class fighters will come together for a weekend of discussion and debate. It will be a showcase for the socialist alternative to crisis, cuts and capitalism.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

  • The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
  • We must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.
