Next Saturday Counterfire is hosting a day of discussion about Marxism and its relevance to today’s multilevel crisis. The organisers explain why it matters.

The capitalist system is failing. Inflation and slump threaten homelessness and hunger. In the Global South, whole states are in collapse. The great powers are resorting to war to overcome their problems, plunging the world further into crisis. Catastrophic climate events are already with us.

The need for socialist transformation is clear. Resistance is growing in Britain and around the world. Here, hundreds of thousands of workers have been on strike for pay rises and better work conditions. Thousands more have taken to the streets against the desperate consequences of the cost-of-living crisis. 

To fight for fundamental change however, we need to understand the dynamics of capitalism and learn the lessons of past struggles. Marxism is exactly this: the theory of system change. Marxism in a Day provides an introduction to the Marxist method and Marx’s critique of capitalism. At the same time, it will be a chance to apply and update Marxist ideas to our fast-changing world. Come along and discuss how to make change happen!
