Growing poverty and inequality, unemployment and low pay, war and its horrific consequences, economic stagnation and crisis; these are the facts of life under capitalism.
But across the world we are seeing the fightback growing. There is a growing appetite for an alternative. In the US, 47% of people surveyed said they would vote for a socialist for president!
Here in Britain, hundreds of thousands have marched against austerity, strikes take place every day, people are discussing how to fight austerity!
At these rallies the speakers will provide a serious analysis – but also propose serious socialist action based on the collective potential power of the working class to fight.
