Communist University 2018
August 18-25 2018, London
Labour Party Marxists co-sponsors the annual school, Communist University. (See here for video highlights of previous year’s events.) The struggle in the Labour Party will be an important theme throughout the 8 day event and – unlike too many of the ‘educational’ conferences organised by socialist and working class organisations – there will be ample time and democratic space for speakers and members of the audience to interrogate ideas and really challenge much of the received wisdom of the left.
We have a collective ethos when it comes to the organisation of the event and it’s always fun to watch participants who might have just torn polemical strips off each other in a session then laugh, joke and continue the debate as they cut up carrots for the evening meal. It is, without a doubt, the highlight of our political year. Be part of it!
