In the Balance—the Class Struggle in Britain

Economic crisis can lead to outbursts of anger, but it can also lead to demoralisation. What is the balance of class forces in Britain today? And what impact can the left have on the course of the struggle?


Charlie Kimber will present a seminar based on a major forthcoming article in International Socialism journal.



6.30pm, Friday 27 March. King’s College London, the Strand. Room details to follow.
