Join this crucial discussion about the left and the movements in the year ahead

This is the most dramatic political moment for a generation. Our rulers face a series of interlocking crises; spreading war, economic stagnation, turmoil in the EU and a refugee catastrophe. 

Everywhere there is rising anger and a deep crisis of representation. In Britain we have the most left wing Labour leader ever. Discontent is growing in workplaces and communities. While there are openings for the right, the left has huge opportunities.

This is a moment to be active, but also to be clear. Our conference aims to develop the sharpest possible analysis of a fast moving situation. It will discuss how socialists should relate to Brexit, the threat of war with Russia, how best to campaign against racism, how we can keep the Corbyn project moving forward and build resistance on the ground, and much more.

It is all about participation. It is not a delegate event, but a conference for all members. The more members come, the more informed our decisions will be. 
If you need somewhere to stay on the weekend or you want more info, please contact us. The preliminary agenda and full details are below.

Meanwhile, book your place here and be part of it.
