“I’ve never been to Marxism before. I’m coming down with a group of friends from Preston – I know lots of people who want to find out more about the radical left. I’m looking forward to hearing about revolution in Latin America and learning more about the struggles in Nepal. For years I trusted the mainstream media but not any more. I think Marxism will be a chance to find out more about what is really going on.”
Charlie Winstanley, 16, school student from Preston
