War, oppression, poverty and climate change have defined the first decade of the 21st century. But so too has resistance. As the global economic system moves from crisis to crisis, ordinary people all over the world are looking for alternatives, and ways to fight back.

The stakes couldn't be higher. We're not just fighting to save jobs and pensions, or to bring the troops home now. Faced with the growing threat of climate change, we're fighting for the future and survival of the planet.

Marxism 2010 is a three-day conference of over 40 talks and panel discussions, where hundreds will discuss and debate how to build a better world.

 Join us: we have a planet to save, and a world to win.

Billy Bragg vs. the BNP

Billy Bragg Battles the BNP over England's Soul--But Does it Have One Anymore?

By Ed West

How is it that the loudest cries for diversity come from the drivers of Land Rovers? Or, at least, people who live in areas where everyone else does. Billy Bragg is campaigning in Barking against the BNP and although the folk singer doesn't drive a Chelsea tractor so far as I know, he does, in the words of Gary Bushell, "live in a lovely big house in West Dorset".

From Greece to Canada: Austerity or resistance?

The bailout of banks during the economic crisis has created big deficits. Governments around the world are asking ordinary workers to pay for these deficits through “austerity” measures—cutting jobs and public spending. 

In Greece, the response to austerity has been a massive strike wave with thousands of workers refusing to pay for a crisis they did not create. Workers are also responding in Ireland, Portugal, Iceland, Turkey and Canada. Join us to find out more about these fantastic struggles.
