War, Peace and Class Struggle

>> War and peace: a marxist view (José Maria Sison) [Solidair 19 juni 2002]

logo Marx UniefThe fall of the Berlin Wall was supposed to inaugurate an era of universal peace. Twelve years later, the world is further away from peace than ever. Irak, Somalia, the Congo, Afghanistan, Palestine, Irak again are only some of the countries struck by the horrors of war. With Yugoslavia, even Europe is not spared. The most powerful country in the world today openly threatens to use nuclear weapons against nations which do not possess them. At the same time, unemployment is still on the increase and living conditions for the masses are going more and more downhill.

Reasons enough to have a go at capitalism and its partner imperialism, the hidden face of globalisation. The people who demonstrated in Brussels, Barcelona and Seville know that only too well. How do the Marxists who took part in the movement analyse capitalism, globalisation and war? What alternatives do they suggest? And how do they propose putting them in practice? These are the questions which will be debated, in a relaxed and good-humoured atmosphere, at the Marxist Summer University.

After the success of the course given by the Indian Marxist Harpal Brar this winter, the Marxist Summer University is once again proposing a course in English (with workshops in English, French, Dutch and Spanish, according to demand), given this time by José Maria Sison, Filipino Marxist, and Ella Rule, English Marxist.

Internat autonome de la Communauté française, Dessus de la Ville 3 bte 37, 5660 Couvin, Belgium (near the French border, accessible by train via Brussels and Charleroi).
