The protests and events surrounding the G8 summit end on 7 July. But there’s no reason that the discussion has to stop there.
From 7-11 July the Marxism 2005 event will take place in central London. The best speakers from the left in Britain and across the globe will be there to join the debate on key questions for the movement.

- French feminist Christine Delphy on the French left and the ban on the hijab.
