Event description

Free event, book via Eventbrite here

The work of Rosa Luxemburg has never been more important. It was Luxemburg who first argued that capitalism ravaged the resources of the world, was inherently imperialist, and therefore endless wars were inevitable. Her warnings against certain forms of nationalism and all forms of authoritarian government including so called socialist governments has never been more timely. Her concept of spontaneity still has everything to teach us about the possibility and process of revolution in our times. Her unique commitment to socialism as a transformation of all social relations, her searching link between public and private life, still challenges us to rethink how and why feminism is central to revolutionary politics.
