This year’s conference is meeting at a time when the world seems on the edge of a new economic slump. Diplomatic, political, and military crises are frequently sending shockwaves across the globe. In Britain the EU referendum is opening up divisions in the Tory party, while Corbyn’s Labour party is battling the right-wing Blairites in the party to be able to put forward clear socialist policies. Meanwhile, as austerity is set to continue it is young people who are still bearing the brunt of the cuts, with the axing of maintenance grants for the poorest students being just the latest example of this. There has never been a more important time for us to study the ideas of Marxism and the revolutionary history of the working class. Armed with these ideas and a plan for how to put them into practice we can fight for a revolutionary alternative to the system that is robbing us of our future.

Everyone who is interested in the ideas of Marxism and who would like to meet Marxist activists from all over Britain is welcome to attend and participate in the debates and discussions.

Delegates from all the groups affiliated to the Marxist Student Federation will be discussing, among other things, the future of the work of Marxist students in 2016, as well as amending and voting on this document which is being proposed to the conference.
