International Communist Current

Come to a day of discussion


Following the successful meeting we had last year, the ICC invites you to another day of discussion in London, on 22 June 2013.

The main focus of the day will be a discussion around the theme:

Capitalism is in deep trouble – why is it so hard to fight against it?

In this session, we will consider questions such as: is it accurate to say that capitalism is in terminal decline? What is really at stake in the struggle of the working class to defend itself? What are the main obstacles to the development of the struggle?

We have published a great deal about the crisis in our press but we recommend the following one to give a general overview of the situation confronting capitalism:

Regarding the problem of responding to the crisis, we think the following article, and the discussion on our internet forum that it stimulated, provide a good starting point:

http://en.internationalism.org/forum/10 ... fficulties

In the afternoon we are planning to organise a discussion around the theme:

How do we get from capitalism to communism?

What does a revolution look like? What is the ‘dictatorship of the proletariat’? How can capitalist relations of production be overturned? How will the working class deal with the huge problems posed by capitalism’s destruction of the environment?

As with last year’s meeting, we hope that the presentations will be given by comrades who are not ICC members.

We think that these discussions will be of interest to comrades in or around revolutionary political organisations, to people who have been actively involved in the class struggle, and to anyone asking questions about the nature and future of present-day society – and about the feasibility of getting rid of it.

If you are interested in attending, please let us know in advance, especially if you have any accommodation, transport or other problems that might make it difficult for you to come along.

The venue is upstairs at the Lucas Arms, 245a Grays Inn Road, London WC1X 8QZ. The first session will go from 11-2 and the afternoon session from 3-6. We will arrange for food at lunch time but we are also planning to go to a nearby restaurant after the meeting. The meeting is free but we will ask for contributions for the food and the room.

Contact us at [email protected] or at BM Box 869, London, WC1N 3XX, or PM me on this forum

Our technology is crude but we will try to do something. We recorded the last one but failed to do the editing work needed. In the end we wrote summaries of two of the discussions.
We haven't resolved the security aspect of the 'video question' either. Some comrades have strong reservations about being put on film. Something to discuss more widely.

An audio-only recording is a useful alternative to video. There are some decent digital audio contraptions out there, which are a step-up from the good old-fashioned tape cassette recorder :>) The files of recordings can then be easily transferred to p.c. and edited accordingly.
