Birmingham Public Meeting



Capitalism is pushing us to war. From Ukraine to Gaza, Yemen and beyond, powers large and small are enrolling workers to kill and die in defence of the interests of capital as their system is unable to throw of its permanent economic crisis. The British state – along with other NATO partners – is now openly warning the population that a new World War is coming. Parties right and left urge us to support this or that warring faction but the interests of the workers are global not local. We have no property to defend and no nation is worth one drop of workers' blood. The only war that workers have any interest in is the class war.

In this meeting, we'll give an overview of how we see the current imperialist proxy wars and how they relate to the 'crisis of capitalism', and we'll discuss what can be done by workers in the face of these wars.
