'Rosa Luxemburg'

Date: Sunday, 19th January at 3.00pm

Venue: The Socialist Party's premises, 52 Clapham High Street, London SW4 7UN

Directions: About 4 minutes walk from Clapham North tube on the Northern line and 3 minutes walk from Clapham High Street station on the Circular Overground line

When WW1 is the focus of attention it is as well to draw attention to those like Rosa Luxemburg who not only opposed the war but who also opposed the system that gives rise to war. An outspoken socialist writer and activist her uncompromising views on nationalism, on the common interests of the international proletariat – victory or defeat in war the result was the same for the proletariat - led her to oppose war - at a time of war. While Social Democratic Parties set aside all the fine resolutions passed at Congresses of the Second International and succumbed to supporting their respective national interests. In the background to her story we can also see the damage done by 'socialists' to the cause of Socialism.

A talk by Pat Deutz
