The neoliberal politics led in varying degrees by most European countries since the 1980s has produced a continual growth of the precarious class. Neoliberal politics are also eroding the welfare systems which the international Workers Movements fought hard to build. What would Karl Marx, the father of communism, have said? We celebrate Marx’s 200th anniversary by returning to the source. Join us for the first of three public readings of Marx’s epic work, Capital – Critique of Political Economy.

Each reading group will be hosted by the Centre for Precarious Lives with a special guest.

Oct. 26th at 5-7 pm: Emilia Bergmark, artist.

Dec. 6th: Eskil Halberg, sociologist and proletariat educator.

Dec. 8th: Karen Helveg Petersen, political economist and author.

We will read together so no preparation or prior knowledge of Marx is required. Texts are provided on the spot but a pdf copy of Capital can also be found here if you just can’t wait.

This event is free and wheelchair accessible butplease sign up via centreforprecariouslives@gmail.com.
