Report from the Belfast ‘Resist’ event

By Emily Frazer, Belfast Socialist Youth

Socialist Youth’s ‘Resist’ event in Belfast attracted over 35 people throughout the day to hear debate and discussion on socialist ideas.

A debate entitled “How can we stop environmental destruction?” with the Green Party was an important discussion on the best way to solve the ongoing crisis over our environment.

A discussion on the 40th Anniversary of Che Guevara’s death and why you should be a socialist today had the biggest audience. There were speakers on young workers’ rights, women’s rights, the struggle internationally and who are Socialist Youth. There was a lively discussion on many issues from the 11+ exam to attacks on the future of our health system.

In the evening the film showing of Chavez: Inside the Coup brought up the important example of Latin America in struggle and the threats it now faces.
