Communists‬ from across ‪Scotland‬ met in ‪Glasgow‬ this Saturday to listen to an excellent presentation from CPGB-ML Chairman Harpal Brar.

Comrade Harpal spoke on the topic of ‪Imperialism‬ and ‪War‬ – particularly important as we reach the centenary of the outbreak of the‪ ‎First World War‬. Despite the ruling classes’ war propaganda and jingoism, it’s vital that workers (and young people) understand that the war was an inter-imperialist struggle to control colonies – at the expenses of millions of workers’ lives from across Europe, Africa and Asia. A short video excerpt of the speech can be seen below. Any group that would like Harpal to speak on this topic is welcome to send a request to our email address.

A lively discussion followed in which comrades agreed on the necessity of building a workers’ movement free from social democracy at home, and reaffirming our support for anti-imperialist forces abroad – particularly the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah, and the anti-fascist resistance in Donetsk, Lugansk and other parts of ‘eastern Ukraine’.

The event was preceded by a meeting of Glasgow CPGB-ML who worked out plans for expanding the branch and our work in the city. If you’d like to get involved and join the struggle – email info@redyouth.org
