Trotsky online rally - watched across the world

CWI members in Nigeria watch the rally

Over 6,000 people have watched our rally - Leon Trotsky: Why couldn't his idea be killed? - commemorating the 80th anniversary of his assassination. It was organised by the Committee for a Workers' International (CWI), the international socialist organisation the Socialist Party is part of.

On 23 August, some watched on their own, some in pairs and others hosted watch parties. Here you can see socialists in Nigeria gathered together to watch the rally. It was truly an international event, and the speakers illuminated Trotsky's ideas.

You can rewatch it at 'Socialist World - CWI' on Facebook or 'CWI Media' on Youtube. The contribution by Socialist Party political secretary Peter Taaffe, 'the role of Trotskyism', suffered the most technical issues. But you can now see it in full on the CWI's Youtube channel.

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.
