Communist University, the open, forthright, and
topically diverse school of left-wing exchange and discussion is
being hosted this year at Goldsmiths University, the Surrey House
Unlike other lefty political schools CU is a place
where differing views contend and clash openly. There are no deathly dull
hagiographic sessions put on to show fidelity to some
spurious sect 'tradition', and members of the CPGB, as well as
comrades of all other organisations and none, can air their views
and argue and debate freely with one another.
As always the event will seek to deal with topics
of particular current relevance to the left as part of a striving for
political clarity among Marxists, but also on subject matter that is
timeless in its value to all communists.
This year's accommodation at Goldsmiths will be in
en-suite rooms, food will no doubt be communally prepared as always
at CU as a small effort to foster a culture of rotation and mutual
effort. Pre-figuration ain't just for anarchists!
So come along to the most invigorating and open
political school on the left and have your say.
