Forum: Fighting for Socialism in the 21st Century
World At a Cross Roads - Fighting for Socialism in the 21st Century.
2pm Sat Feb 28th @ the Resistance Centre 23 Abercrombie St, Chippendale.
A lead up forum to the international socialism conference. In the context of the global economic crisis, new alternatives to capitalism are emerging in Latin America spearheaded by the Bolivarian revolution in Venezuela. This has sparked an international debate about the idea of "Socialism in the 21st Century" as an alternative to the capitalist crisis of war, exploitation and environmental destruction that is destroying our planet. Come and hear more about this growing movement.

• Kiraz Janicke- Recently returned from 12 months in Venezuela, where she worked as a journalist for www.venezuelanalysis.com.
• Tim Anderson - Senior Lecturer of the Department of Political Economy at the University of Sydney.
• Peter Boyle national secretary of the Democratic Socialist Perspective.
