DID YOU SEE THE NEWS? (Zoom)
Discussion on recent subjects in the news
THE REWARDS OF COMPETITION: A PRIZE WORTH FIGHTING FOR? (Zoom)
Speaker: Richard Field
We are told that competition is good but is it natural and how does it affect relations between people?
SUSTAINABILITY BEFORE AND AFTER THE REVOLUTION (Zoom)
Speaker: John Cumming
Media people are always trying to spread the blame concerning the environment and thus turn it into just another ‘moral panic’ in which we should all ‘do our bit’. But the effect of what we can do as individuals is limited compared to what might be achieved when we really are ‘all in it together’.
SOCIALIST PARTY IN-PERSON MEETINGS

SOCIALISM: NOTHING LESS WILL DO
Friends Meeting House, Mount Street, central Manchester.
Capitalism will always be unstable and dangerous to people’s well-being. Its very structure operates against workers’ interests, all the time. Time to stop putting up with it and to replace it with a classless society.

Socialist weekend at Yealand Conyers in Cumbria
After unavoidable interruptions including a pandemic, Lancaster branch is once again organising a socialist residential weekend, from Friday 23 to Sunday 25 June, at the Yealand Quaker Centre in rural Cumbria. This is a sociable get-together for members and non-members in a nice hostel with dorm rooms and self-catering facilities, where we muck in together on the cooking and chores. The last time we did this was in 2019 and it was a pretty enjoyable experience all round (see the report in the August 2019 Socialist Standard – bit.ly/3H9OzkY). The branch will bear the hire cost but is happy to accept pay-what-you-can contributions. You’ll also have to fund your own travel arrangements. Spaces are limited to max 16 so if you’d like to take part please let us know at email@example.com.
