Talk and discussion: The left, oppression and liberation politics
Add to My Calendar
Saturday, November 28, 2015 - 12:00 to 18:00
  • at Labour and Revolution, a dayschool hosted by the socialist organisation Workers' Liberty to discuss ideas for the new left movement after Jeremy Corbyn's election
  • at the Anatomy Building, University College London, Gower Street WC1E 6XA. Near loads of Tubes - Warren Street, Goodge Street, Euston Square, Euston

The organisers write: 

We're delighted that we'll be having comrade Janine Booth, poet, Tube worker and RMT activist, Workers' Liberty supporter, and author of the socialist feminist pamphlet "Comrades and Sisters", leading a workshop about the left and the politics of oppression and liberation. It should be an excellent discussion of how class politics and liberation politics fit together - how we can strengthen and intertwine anti-oppression struggles and workers' struggles, and build a revolutionary movement that fights to overthrow all oppression.
