Why Marx Was Right
Saturday 5 May
In a nutshell
As Marx’s 200th birthday approaches, and with the world in crisis, we look at why his ideas still matter today.
Capitalism is in crisis, and, just as Marx said, its failures are causing chaos around the world.
As a result, many people are looking for change, and the idea of socialism is back. To celebrate his birthday, we have brought together writers, performers, thinkers, and activists to explore why Marx matters and what Marxism means today.
Counterfire are a revolutionary organisation committed to building the movements and making the case for socialism.
Why does Rich Mix matter?
'It consistently provides a platform for radical ideas, diverse cultural events, and local communities.'
