London ESF great success

Thursday 21 October 2004

Twenty thousand anti-globalisation activists from across Europe descended on Alexandra Palace for the Third European Social Forum.

Comrades of Socialist Resistance and the LCR declared:

“The different world we fight for is a socialist world - one in which the rule of profit is eliminated and things are produced on the basis of social need in an ecologically sustainable way. This needs a different form of democracy, in which people were elected where they work or live to argue and vote in accordance with the proposals debated by that group, but would be recalled instantly if they did not follow that mandate. This is our democracy, not theirs.”
