Shropshire Socialist Party: Imperialism and revolution in the Middle East

Thursday 26th May 2011

7.30pm

Hobbs Room, Shrewsbury Library, Castle Gates, Shrewsbury

From Tunisia, to Egypt, to Bahrain, to Libya, to Yemen, to Djibouti and Morocco, the revolution that was sparked by the self-immolation of the desperate and heroic street seller in Tunisia has erupted throughout the Middle East.

This is truly a region-wide revolution of the Arab people. The super-exploited, impoverished workers and farmers have had their fill of the dictatorial regimes of all persuasions, from 'kings' to just 'plain' dictators.

Like the masses in the French Revolution over two centuries ago, their refrain is "tremble you tyrants the people are coming". Come and hear the possibilities for likely developments in these movements, and what impact they have on the workers' movements in Britain and around the world, followed by open discussion.

Please feel free to invite friends, family and work colleagues!
