Marxism 2006: A festival of resistance

Issue No. 2004

For five days thousands will gather at this political festival to celebrate the global movement against war and injustice.

There are some 200 forums and debates as well as a range of entertainment including gigs, theatre productions, exhibitions and film showings.

6-10 July, Central London

“I have never been to Marxism before. I think it will be a great chance to network with other people with the same goals and aims. We will be discussing global issues that affect all of us – health, education, war, poverty.

“I am looking forwards to hearing from George Galloway and John Rees. I work in health, where there is a serious lack of funding and important services are being destroyed. At Marxism we can discuss how we organise against this.”

Yasmin Ramzan, health worker, Leeds
