An Invitation to the Birmingham Political Forum on the Future of Society
Saturday, March 25, 2017
11:00 am (registration) – 4:00 pm
To participate, contact RTUC
The times are crying out for the working class and people to take control of the future of society. This Political Forum in the Midlands is one of a number to take place in the coming months in cities and regions throughout Britain which will discuss this issue and what is necessary to achieve this.
RCPB(ML) invites all democratic forces and working people of all nationalities and from all walks of life, especially young people and those involved in the struggle for a change in direction of society, to participate and contribute to the discussion. Bring your views, your questions, your concerns and energise the discussion. Present your vision of a better future, a new direction.
The workers’ and people’s movements are affirming that the problems facing society, including the danger of war, the destruction of the manufacturing base, and the trampling on the rights of all human beings, demand resolution and that working people – youth, women, workers, the people as a whole – are the force that can bring about change.
Let us work out together how to realise a modern society and take control of the future, in a situation where what is absent today is the ability, the power, of the working class and people to take control of their lives and be the decision-makers. Let us together discuss the concrete work and practical politics required to ensure the success of the pro-social movements of the people and remove the blocks to the progress of society.
