About Keep Left 2023

We live in an increasingly dangerous world defined by crisis, from the threat of climate catastrophe, a cost of living crisis, and a war in Ukraine that has become a clash between major powers in Russia and NATO. There are increasing tensions between the US and China that threaten an even more deadly war, with Australia helping feed the military build-up in our region.

The new Labor government is backing militarism and refusing to deliver real change. But we have also seen mass revolts from Iran to China, and waves of strikes across Britain, France and the US. Join us at Keep Left to discuss the way crisis and resistance defines the world, and how we can organise to win change.

Keep Left is a two day festival of socialist ideas and discussion hosted by Solidarity.
