Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won’t come again
Editors Note: Three local marxist groups have organised forums in solidarity with the Revolution in Egypt. Here are the meetings that have or are still to occur (in chronological order). They have been directly affected by the revolutions in the the Middle East. Some have links with the organisers in Egypt, with bloggers and a new generation of activists opposed to imperialism.
Revolutionary Socialist Party
Egypt & the Arab revolution
A wave of rebellion is looming thoughout Africa and the Middle East, threatening imperialist domination and dictatorship. Developments in Egypt signal the growing crisis and instability of the neoliberal model and the possibility of new anti-capitalist struggles and 21st Century socialist revolutions.
The lecture will be given by Kim Bullimore. Kim is a volunteer with the International Women’s Peace Service in Palestine and a lecturer in Middle East and global politics.

FROM TUNISIA TO EGYPT
REVOLUTION IN THE MIDDLE EAST
A stunning revolt by workers and the poor is shaking the Arab world. The revolution in Tunisia has inspired or accelerated protest movements in Algeria, Yemen, Jordan and beyond. And now Egypt – the most strategically important of all the Arab countries – is in the midst of a mass rebellion the likes of which has not been seen in a generation, and which threatens to topple the hated pro-US dictator, Hosni Mubarak.
Join Socialist Alternative and author Dr. Tom Bramble for a talk and discussion of the unfolding events, their roots and implications for all those against imperialism in the middle east.
6.30pm Tuesday 1st February

Will later be past
The order is
And the first one now
Will later be last
