In the four weeks leading up to the September 22 German federal election, the Socialist Equality Party (PSG) will hold four international online meetings in addition to a “European workers’ rally against war, dictatorship and social cuts.” The first meeting will take place in Berlin on Sunday, August 25, at 15.00 (GMT+2) and will address the crucial political lessons arising from the military coup in Egypt.
The dramatic events of recent weeks in Egypt underscore the need for a socialist programme and a revolutionary leadership. More than two years after the uprising, Hosni Mubarak has been released from prison and the military is using brute force to turn back the clock to the period prior to February 2011. The Egyptian military is relying on liberal and pseudo-left forces who openly support the violent intervention of the army, thereby revealing their counterrevolutionary character. The Berlin meeting will be transmitted live on the Internet at 15.00 (GMT+2) and can be viewed with an English translation. Online participants will be able to post questions and comments in real time and thereby contribute to the meeting. Online participation requires a current browser and the Flash plugin. Access to the meeting is available through the PSG election campaign web site.
The meeting will take place at:
Bergmannstr. 54, 10961 Berlin
