Marxism 2008: Call for Papers

Marxism 2008: May 30-June 1, Auckland City, New Zealand
(Schedule and venue to be announced)

From May 30 to June 1, the Workers Party of New Zealand will be holding its 6th annual educational conference, Marxism 2008, in Auckland.

The conference will be particularly important this year because, for the first time, the Workers Party will be registering as a political party to stand in the national general election on the party list. This is the first time in New Zealand history that a revolutionary socialist option will be on the ballot paper in every part of the country.

The Workers Party invites militant activists and intellectuals, particularly international guests, to participate in the conference and we hope that there will be talks by international guests. We encourage those who wish to deliver presentations to contact us before April 1 2008 for consideration.

Please contact Phil Ferguson by emailing
