The Socialist Party has organised this weekend around important issues facing working people today. Governments across the globe have intervened to bail out banks and big business. These bail outs have been at the cost of workers’ wages, jobs and public services such as health and education. This weekend will discuss why there is an economic crisis and is there an alternative to the cuts

The event will also deal with other important issues like the huge threat posed to the planet by climate change and the ongoing crisis in the Catholic Church as a result of the child abuse scandals.

We think anyone concerned about the policies being imposed and where they will lead, or what passes for politics in this country should attend this event.

The “Kony 2012” phenomena: How to end a nightmare?

Shocked at the story of killing, rape and child soldiers, demands multiplied that “something must be done” against Joseph Kony and the brutal Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) he leads in eastern and central Africa.

Con-Dems’ economic policy… austerity, austerity, austerity!

The Con-Dem chancellor, George Osborne, claims his budget (24 March) is the "most pro-growth budget for a generation". But the British economy is barely crawling along, and the budget will do nothing to promote growth.

The government previously predicted 2.3% growth of gross domestic product (GDP - value of the total output of goods and services) for 2011. Now, the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) forecasts meagre growth of 1.7% of GDP for 2011. Even that may prove to be optimistic given the scale of spending cuts and tax increases.
