The Marxist Society is a group of revolutionary students, working to build a revolutionary organisation in the UK and across the world.
We meet every week to discuss the ideas of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Trotsky as well as getting involved in the local student and labour movement, on the streets, pickets and protests. Our aim is to build an alternative to the world we see around us now. We believe that the capitalist system is responsible for massive exploitation and oppression of workers and youth.
We can see the suffering that capitalism is causing all around us. From the skyrocketing cost of living to the war in Ukraine, capitalism is facing its biggest global crisis, and is more economically and politcally unstable than ever before. We have all grown up knowing nothing but economic crisis, austerity and increasingly deranged Tory goverments.
We believe the ideas of Marxism are the only ideas which can explain the turmoil around us, and that we must study these ideas closely so that we can build the revolutionary leadership needed to overthrow capitalism.
