4:30pm Sunday 4 September

About this session

What would a workers revolution look like in the 21st century? Marxists argue that a revolution is both necessary and possible to overthrow capitalism. In the last decade uprisings have broken out in Sudan, Chile, Algeria, Hong Kong, Myanmar and more. Many of these uprisings began with partial demands around democracy, inequality, neoliberalism or in opposition to military rule. In all of them the social power of workers played an important role in threatening the status quo. But how could a revolution go further and dismantle capitalism? This session will explore what working class power would look like today
