This year’s edition of The World Transformed festival of radical politics will be a month-long online programme of events based on eight themes, including “socialist demands in the coronavirus era, the future of work and workplace organising, unthinking racism and imperialism, and understanding the digital world”.
According to TWT’s programme coordinator Kulsoom Jafri, the event “will cover a range of themes, including socialist demands in the coronavirus era, the future of work and workplace organising, unthinking racism and imperialism, and understanding the digital world.
“We will also be taking a step back to reflect on the past five years, discuss what the current moment teaches us about capitalism, and consider what strategies socialists can adopt after the general election defeat and the end of the Corbyn era. Last but not least, it will be a space to share practical skills, from delivering political education events to resisting evictions.
“The World Transformed was never just for Momentum member and this moment is too important for us to close ourselves in our comfort zones,” she adds in an article on Labour List.
“We want to welcome activists involved in extra-parliamentary struggles, such as Black Lives Matter and the climate movement, those newly politicised by the experience of the pandemic, as well as those on the softer left who are interested in transformative policies to address our systemic problems.
“Only by combining our networks, talents and experiences can we face up to the current crisis – and shape the future.”
