‘Socialism 2020’, hosted by the Socialist Party (CWI England & Wales), takes place from today, Friday 20 November, to Monday 23 November. It will provide a Marxist analysis and explanation of many of the different aspects of the multi-crises world we live in.

Hundreds of socialists, trade unionists, students, young workers and anti-cuts fighters will be coming together from 20 to 23 November to discuss all the complex questions that confront us in the fight for our lives and our livelihoods. Socialism 2020 will be a place where everyone can participate in the discussion on ideas to change the world.
