Apartheid has ended but the struggle for economic justice continues.

Our speaker, visiting from South Africa, will talk about the current situation: the xenophobic pogroms of 2008; the recent election of Jacob Zuma as president and what his administration means for the popular classes; effects of the global economic crisis on SA; the recent wave of strikes and community revolts.

Meeting at the Autonomous Centre of Edinburgh, 17 West Montgomery Place (directions)

Food available from 6pm, with talk & discussion following from 7pm.
