The Newcastle Day school - 5th May
“Losing Momentum: must the left fail again?”
In this talk, the history of attempts - both successful? and otherwise - to reform capitalism are discussed to try and gain an understanding of how Jeremy Corbyn and Momentum might fare if they gain power.
“Capitalism, Post-Capitalism and Socialism”
This talk tries to understand the social system that Momentum is seeking to challenge, looks ahead to some of the alternatives to capitalism that are proposed and discusses the pros and cons of each.
The speakers are Brian Gardner and Cliff Slapper
Venue: North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers
Newcastle upon Tyne
Doors open at 2,30.
1st speaker 3.00pm. close at 6.30pm.
We are also hoping to get a speaker from Momentum to put their side of the debate, more news on this when we have it.
The venue is literally 1 minutes walk from Newastle Central Station and a bar has been arranged, the support of comrades and sympathisers outside of the area would be gratefully received as we try to kick-start the Socialist Party in the North-East.
