Upcoming Leeds SWP meetings:

Pride Politics and Protest…the struggle for LGBT Liberation

Thursday 22 October – 7.00 pm Swarthmore Education Centre, 2-7 Woodhouse Sq. LS3 1AD

LGBT People in many countries have undeniably made important strides towards equal rights at work and in society. However, this is against a backdrop of continuing institutional discrimination, hate crimes, harassment, and abuse. In some countries, driven by rising inequality and pressure on resources in a period of worldwide crisis of the capitalist system, LGBT oppression is being stoked by ruling classes fearful of mass revolts and by other reactionary, fascist and homophobic forces.

This meeting organised Leeds Socialist Workers’ Party (SWP) will discuss the periods when LGBT people have made the greatest progress towards not just toleration but real liberation have also been high points of working class struggle. It highlights the lessons we can learn about the importance of offering solidarity to other oppressed groups on the basis of an injury to one is an injury to all.
