SEP Australia public meeting: The Egyptian Revolution and its political implications
4 February 2011
The Socialist Equality Party is holding a public meeting in Sydney on February 11 to discuss the historic significance of the revolutionary upheaval taking place in Egypt.
After decades of suppression of the class struggle, the working class has re-entered the political arena, driven by hostility to escalating repression, exploitation and inequality, in a powerful demonstration of its social power and revolutionary capacities.
SEP speakers will discuss the critical issues of political perspective and leadership that are posed to workers not only in Egypt, but also throughout the world. In particular, they will review the immense contemporary relevance of Leon Trotsky’s Theory of Permanent Revolution, which guided the strategy and tactics that led to the victory of the Russian Revolution in October 1917.
We urge all WSWS readers and SEP supporters in the Sydney area to attend the public meeting, and to advertise it as widely as possible among family, friends and colleagues.
Friday, February 11, 7:00 p.m.
Herb Greedy Hall
79 Petersham Road, Marrickville
