    Apparently they're planning to make money out of the 200th anniversary of Marx's birth next year:

    Pity the Cuban exiles didn't suceed in blowing up the monstrosity erected by the Communist Party and  the Russian government on his grave in 1956. The state-capitalist dictators of Russia and their supporters in Britain had no right to do that.

    It is true that Herbert Spencer, the 19th century anarcho-capitalist philosopher, is buried opposite him, hence the joke about Marx and Spencer being buried next to each other:

    If Marx were alive today he would be turning in his grave.

    Rather than the customary commemorative issue of the Socialist Standard and a few special public meetings, has anybody got any suggestions for some other sort of event that could bring us a bit publicity.Despite some thinking the grave a monstrosity i am sure there will be a long line of groups taking their turn to be videoed and photographed doing a grave-side speech so that is out, i think.

    The obvious thing is to have a stall outside the entrance. It's in the North London branch catchment area.
