Welcome to the latest in my series of posts about Marxism 2015, the five-day political festival in central London organised by the Socialist Workers Party. For this post I will be dealing exclusively with the first meeting after lunch on Sunday. After the main body of the post I have some links to share.
AN INSPIRATIONAL MEETING
A platform full of excellent speakers, some great stories and a packed out meeting room make for good vibes. The room used, Nunn Hall, had been reconfigured to suit this particular meeting, with an area cleared for wheelchair users, and a team of people set up to provide DSL.
It is in the context of this meeting, and the stories of protest contained therein that I choose to make my first mention of October 4th in Manchester, when we will be protesting outside the Tory conference and this protest should be built as big as possible.
I am finishing this brief post with a few links, one of them accompanied by an infographic.
My first link is a facebook page about the horror that is TTIP.
My second and third links are both related to environmental issues:
Ending this post with a bang, this link and infographic courtesy of Jo Stevens, Labour MP for Cardiff.
