Marxist

Marxism is a political theory which says that the only way to secure real change is through the revolutionary transformation of today's capitalist system to socialism, where society’s vast wealth is democratically owned and controlled by and for the good of ordinary people, rather than for the profits of a tiny minority. The Sussex Marxist Society was founded to discuss these ideas and their relevance to contemporary events. We are affiliated to the Marxist Student Federation which advocates for socialism in universities nationally.

The leaders of the capitalist system cannot find a solution to its problems. The world economy is threatening to slip into another global crisis, while governments have carried out harsh austerity since the last crisis. Imperialist wars of the past twenty years have left the Middle East bleeding at the hands of Daesh and caused a refugee crisis in Europe. Palestine remains under the thumb of Israeli imperialists.

However, the Arab Spring and the movements around Podemos in Spain, SYRIZA in Greece and Jeremy Corbyn in Britain show that people are fed up with austerity and capitalism. In this climate, it is vital that we are educated in the ideas of Marxism in order to provide a socialist alternative.

We meet every Wednesday 6-8pm in Fulton 113. All opinions welcome!
