The International Youth and Students for Social Equality (IYSSE), the youth organisation of the Socialist Equality Party (SEP), will hold a series of lectures at Australian universities to consider the implications of the Chinese Revolution for today.

Is China socialist and communist? Has it become an imperialist power itself? An independent revolutionary perspective for the working class in China and internationally has to be rooted in a historic and scientific understanding of the Chinese Revolution.

The lecture will review 1949 Chinese Revolution and its consequences, and argue for the perspective of the Trotskyist movement—for a unified struggle of workers in China and around the world to put an end to the exploitative profit system on the basis of socialist internationalism. The lecturer, Peter Symonds, is the SEP’s national World Socialist Web Site editor and has written extensively on China and Asia more broadly.

DETAILS: 6:30 PM Thursday Oct. 3rd, Laby Theatre (Physics building).
