A new Arab Spring?
May 28 at 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Over the last months Sudan and Algeria have been rocked by revolutionary unrest. Inspiring protests have brought hundreds of thousands onto the streets and toppled the governments in both countries. Protesters have held strong against attempts by the military to assert control over the situation.
The revolutions in Sudan and Algeria remind us of the extraordinary power of working class struggle, and they raise vital questions about the role of imperialism in shaping the politics of these countries, especially in Algeria, where even over half a century after the war of independence successive governments have continued to bleed the countries resources into Europe, providing France with oil free of charge. Are we witnessing a new Arab Spring, and what consequences could this have for revolutionary and anti-imperialist movements around the world?
Come and hear activists from the Sudanese and Algerian diaspora talk about their struggles for freedom, and to strategise solidarity.
