Greece has made headlines recently, with an earth-shaking anti-austerity movement apparently growing more organised. At the last elections, anti-austerity coalition Syriza gained substantially, while the two major pro-austerity parties lost votes.
Joel Cosgrove will lead a discussion on the implications of this development for Europe, and the world more generally.

Guillaume Legault is a leading member of Quebec’s CLASSE — the Broad Coalition of the Association for Student Union Solidarity — a radical student organisation at the forefront of a months-long student strike against tuition fee hikes.
Quebec’s student movement is still locked in struggle with the ruling Liberal government over the new fees. The government has responded with police repression and harassment of students. It also passed a new law that bans protests of more than 50 people unless police have given prior approval.
Guillame Legault is participating in a speaking tour across Aotearoa, hear him speak at 6pm on Thursday the 2nd of August, 19 Tory Street (Facebook event.)
Does Marxism serve a useful purpose, or is it an outdated label? How do we identify the wheat and the chaff, the baby and the bathwater? Should we aim to revive the Marxist method, historical materialism?
Talk by Workers Party member Ian Anderson, followed by discussion.
