More cops, more prisons and a "closer relationship" to Donald Trump - news of Boris Johnson's undemocratic election seems to have filled the news over the last few weeks. Join a discussion led by Anindya Bhattacharyya on the Prime Minister, and how the left needs to reorient to fight him. Does Boris Johnson mean a change of direction for the Tories? Since he wasn't decided by a general election, how can we tell if he's popular or not with the British population? What will his pro-Brexit stance and his willingness to leave the EU with no deal mean for ordinary people? How do we fight back against the Tories under his leadership?

Social justice and climate action: where is the power to win?

Turl Street Kitchen, 16-17 Turl Street
Oxford, OX1 3DH

We urgently need to win – to stop climate catastrophe, defeat the far right, get rid of the tories, and to end wars, poverty and oppression. How do we get the power to do so? Marx pointed to the working class as having interests and potential power to end capitalism. But what is the working class today? How have occupational changes affected power? What role can workplace and non-workplace struggles play? Even when working class people have potential power, how can we get the organisation and ideas to use it? Come and join the discussion led by Ian Allinson (socialist and former Unite General Secretary candidate).
