The Global Economic and Political Crisis and the Perspective for Socialism
As the academic year begins in Australia and New Zealand, the International Students for Social Equality (ISSE) will be holding meetings during the university orientation weeks on the “The Global Economic and Political Crisis and the Perspective for Socialism”. ISSE members will also be distributing several thousand copies of a four-page brochure, outlining the programmatic basis of the ISSE and urging students in both countries to join and establish clubs on their campuses.
The current economic and political convulsions in Europe are a graphic indication that far from resolving the crisis, the huge government bank bailouts following the 2008 financial meltdown have only prepared the conditions for another crash, along with ever-more brutal attacks on the jobs, wages and living conditions of workers around the world. This meeting will discuss the underlying causes of the global crisis, and the political ramifications and implications for the international working class.
We encourage all students and young people to help advertise and attend this important ISSE meeting.
The UNSW meeting will be followed by a screening at 1p.m. of Herman Axelbank’s classic documentary “Tsar to Lenin”.
