Capitalism and Class

I'll be speaking on this subject at the 6 Billion Ways event, a gathering supported by Friends of the Earth, War on Want, World Development Movement, Red Pepper, and People & Planet, this Saturday:

Jobs, water, debt, poverty, food, forests, war… Is single issue campaigning missing the wood for the trees? Global justice campaigners in the developing world lament what they see as the increasing depoliticisation of British activism. This session asks if the two ‘C’s are still relevant to UK politics.
