Sat 20/02 Day School: A Critical University Day School (organised by Anti*Capitalist Resistance)
Time & Location
About the Event
It is the greatest crisis in human history. We are hurtling towards an abyss. The system is terminally diseased.
Pandemic, climate crisis, endless war, mega-slums, police repression, creeping fascism, economic stagnation: these shape our world. On one side, grotesque greed and rampaging corporate power. On the other, poverty, oppression, and despair.
Capitalism came into the world, Marx wrote, ‘dripping from head to toe, from every pore, with blood and dirt’. Now, the ageing system is putrescent and gangrenous.
Revolution – ending the rule of capital and the state – has become an existential necessity. This is a call to arms.
In association with the publication of their new book, System Crash, the joint authors will lead discussions on some of the key themes.
This will be the first in a series of occasional online events where we take an in-depth look at the modern world. This will be our ‘Critical University’, where we challenge the narratives, distortions, and cover-ups of mainstream pro-system commentators.
The meetings will be open to all and we aim for maximum accessibility whilst tackling serious theoretical subjects. We especially welcome young activists or would-be activists who are new to Marxist politics but want to get involved.
