London Public Meeting



Imperialist war is raging in Ukraine, in Gaza and the Middle East. Cities are reduced to rubble, millions are refugees and millions more are starving and homeless. Tens of thousands of civilians have been killed, while over half a million workers in uniform have been slaughtered. For what? All for the benefit of the capitalist class and for the benefit of their profits. Workers are being mobilised as cannon fodder by the howls of nationalism coming from our rulers. Now we are being told to prepare for conscription in a future world war. All this is the outcome of capitalism and the only way this can be stopped is by the overthrow of capitalism. Only class struggle and international class unity directed to turning capitalism’s wars into class wars of workers against capitalists can achieve this. For a start this means unity of Russian and Ukrainian workers, unity of Palestinian and Israeli workers against their own capitalists. It means no support for any section of the capitalist class and their wars.

Come to a meeting to discuss:

  • How imperialism is leading us to world war;
  • How class unity, regardless of national origin, is the fundamental first step towards avoiding this war and turning it into a class war to build a communist world;
  • To discuss the political implications of all this.
