Marxist Society

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.

We hold weekly discussion meetings every Thursday in Fulton 113 from 6pm to 8pm. We also take an active role in all ongoing struggles among students and workers in and around campus, including the current UCU strike action.

Spring Term 2018 programme:

8th Feb – What Will Socialism Look Like?
14th Feb – What is Happening in Iran? [WEDNESDAY]
22nd Feb – A Decade of Crisis: 10 Years on from the 2008 Recession
