11-12.15 THE ORIGINS OF WOMENS OPPRESSION
There is a resurgence in the fight for womens rights, from Slutwalk rallies against victim-blaming to anti-sexist marches as part of the Egyptian revolution. This session will discuss how womens oppression emerged as part of a class system and how we can fight it.
12.45 - 2 MARX’S ECOLOGY AND CLIMATE CRISIS
This year Australia experienced its hottest year on record yet Abbott
has just axed the Climate Commission. Meanwhile the carbon tax has not stopped the mining and fossil fuel industries booming. Marx’s theory of ecology and capitalism contained valuable predictions of environmental destruction by explaining the drive for profit and the alienation of humans from the natural world around them.
2 - 3.15 ROSA LUXEMBURG: REFORM OR REVOLUTION?
The question of whether we can reform capitalism or must overthrow it is as critical a question today as when Rosa Luxemburg led the mass workers movement in early 20th century Germany. This session will look at the political life of Rosa Luxemburg and her writings in a discussion on how we can fight for radical social change today.
