THIS weekend sees the launch of Jeremy Corbyn’s Peace and Justice Project with a 90-minute online rally on Sunday at 3pm.
The launch of a “network to generate ideas, share experience, build solidarity and drive change” aims at promoting socialism and internationalism, with support from around the world, and the first event will be addressed by special guest Noam Chomsky, the iconic critic of US imperialism and of the ways capitalist states manufacture consent to their policies.
Other speakers include MP Zarah Sultana, trade union Unite leader Len McCluskey, anti-apartheid veteran Ronnie Kasrils, former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis and more.
“You, those who came before you and those who will come after you in the struggle for peace and justice are the motor of change in history,” Corbyn is expected to say.
“It may not always seem that way, in the face of defeats and setbacks. But movements transform the world.
“That’s why we are all here. Because the struggle for peace and justice is needed today as much as ever. Things can, and they will change, and it’s our job to do it.
“As we live through the second major global crisis in a dozen years we see the scale of the task but also know that we have the solutions, and are better organised and prepared than when the financial crisis hit in 2008.
“We might look around us now and think things look bleak with the climate crisis, the pandemic, the continued rule of billionaires and their political playthings, but history is a funny thing. It doesn’t flow in straight lines.
“The rule of the few over the many rests on very shaky ground. Those with power fight harder to make it seem inevitable that they will be in charge forever than they do trying to make the system work.”
