CWI rally: 80 years since the murder of Leon Trotsky

Can they kill his ideas?

Sunday 23rd August 2020, 2pm BST

The global economic crisis and the pandemic is causing mass misery for millions around the world not seen since the 1930s. The mass BLM movement and other protests and strikes show the bitter anger which exists and demands for an alternative to capitalism and racism. Hear what the Committee for a Workers' International and Trotskyism has to say about those struggles, and the need to build combative fighting trade unions and a mass socialist alternative.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.

We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to click here to donate to our Fighting Fund.

Please donate here.
