Directions

Come to the Marxist Sunday School!

On Sunday the 30th of April comrades of Revolution will host a day of Marxist political education discussions at Teviot Row House in Edinburgh.

The past year has brought an enormous growth in class consciousness amongst masses of people, in Scotland and across the world. Capitalism is in a state of terminal decay, eroding the rights and living standards of working people while hoarding massive wealth at the very top of society.

People are turning to radical and revolutionary ideas to find a way out of this nightmarish system that only promises increasing poverty, misery and war. There is a growing will to fight back, and renewed interest in the most advanced ideas of class struggle: communism.

The International Marxist Tendency is building the prerequisite forces of communist revolution around the world. We invite you to our Sunday School to learn what we are all about, and inspire you to join the struggle for a Scottish Workers’ Republic and World Socialist Revolution!
