MANCHESTER Saturday 20 May, 2pm. DEGROWTH Friends Meeting House, Mount Street, City Centre. Economic growth is a central aspect of capitalism, but it has drastic consequences for the environment. In contrast, the idea of degrowth envisages a world with far less use of energy and resources. In this talk we will ask whether degrowth is possible within capitalism, and what its implications are for a socialist world based on production for use.

Socialist weekend at Yealand Conyers in Cumbria
After unavoidable interruptions including a pandemic, Lancaster branch is once again organising a socialist residential weekend, from Friday 23 to Sunday 25 June, at the Yealand Quaker Centre in rural Cumbria. This is a sociable get-together for members and non-members in a nice hostel with dorm rooms and self-catering facilities, where we muck in together on the cooking and chores. The last time we did this was in 2019 and it was a pretty enjoyable experience all round (see the report in the August 2019 Socialist Standard – bit.ly/3H9OzkY). The branch will bear the hire cost but is happy to accept pay-what-you-can contributions. You’ll also have to fund your own travel arrangements. Spaces are limited to max 16 so if you’d like to take part please let us know at email@example.com.
