CPGB events

Communist University 2014

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 site.

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.
