Bernie Sanders in Conversation with John McDonnell

Saturday 25th September6pm7pm
Brighthelm Centre - Auditorium

In the UK and the USA we've seen a resurgence of support for socialism, particularly amongst younger people. After the defeats in the 2019 election and then the 2020 primary, the left is having to adapt to new circumstances. As they hand over the baton to the next generation, join Sen. Bernie Sanders (video calling in live) and John McDonnell MP for this special event. They’ll be discussing the state of the left on both sides of the Atlantic and where our movements go next.
