Should Socialists Vote In Or Out?

The Haldane Society invites you to join us for a discussion of the referendum on the UK's membership of the EU, from a socialist perspective.  Socialists have split on the issue, with some claiming that leaving will be a blow to austerity and neoliberalism, whilst others argue that it will simply harm those who are weakest in our society and take away hard-won rights.

We will be joined by speakers from both sides of the referendum debate and strongly encourage participation from the floor.

The event will take place on Thursday 9 June 2016 at 6pm-8.30pm at the School of Law, London Metropolitan University, 16 Gouldston Street, Aldgage, London E1 7TP.  All are welcome.  Latecomers are welcome to enter quietly.
