100 years since Rosa Luxemburg's murder - The German Revolution

Thursday 14 Feb 2019 7:00pm

SWP Branch Meeting


Central United Reformed Church
60 Norfolk St (near Crucible Theatre)
Sheffield
S1 2JB

It is 100 years since the murder of German Revolutionary Rosa Luxemburg, who once said, "Bourgeois society stands at the crossroads, either transition to Socialism or regression into barbarism."

Those words ring very true today as we see the discontent toward the establishment growing around the world in bursts of struggles such as the yellow vest movement in France.

It is clear this mood is far from going away as the crisis in capitalism increases and the polarisation grows. We have seen a rise of the far right around the world along with a resurgence of socilaist ideas such as around Sanders in the US and Corbyn here in the UK.

Come to this meeting to discuss the ideas of Rosa Luxemburg and how we can learn from her today.
