Solidarity Day School Event 28th April 2018


Day School in celebration of two giants of socialism:

Karl Marx – 5th May 1818 – 200th Anniversary

Karl Marx was the most influential figure in history, analysing and explaining how capitalist society developed and how it works.  A brilliant philosopher and economist, he is universally demonised by those who support the free market of capitalism; which also means the exploitation of workers by those who own and control capital.

Philip Stott will explain some of Marx’s theories in a way that those attending may understand it better; so this will be an extremely important session for those who wish to understand, not only capitalism but socialism too.

James Connolly – 5th June 1868 – 150th Anniversary.

Connolly is also demonised by those who oppose socialism.  Apologists for the British Establishment would have us believe that he was a mad terrorist but he was one of the finest socialists this country has ever produced.  The British Army, under orders from Westminster, tortured him and tied him to a chair so he could be shot for his part in the 1916 Uprising.  He was an inspirational figure who wrote some brilliant pamphlets, books and articles, explaining

g socialism.

Tommy Sheridan will describe the life and times of a man whose life should be celebrated by all socialists, everywhere.
