"Needless to say, he never even poses, much less tries to answer, the crucial question: does a Marxist group have an historic right to exist?” - Raya Dunayevskaya

Emerging from a crisis into more than a year of existence, this national meeting is chance for IS Network members and supporters to ask the question what is the ISN for? and fundamentally reshape the organisation in light of debates and discussions.

Its also a space to assess our ideas, aspirations and activity from post-Leninism and organisational forms, to liberation politics and anti-fascism, neoliberalism and contemporary social movements, ecosocialism and international issues.

All members and supporters are welcome.
