Marxism 2009, a festival of living and breathing people who want better conditions for the world's working class, starts tomorrow in London and runs through Monday.
The website Resistance MP3 has recordings of American historian Howard Zinn, Black Panther Party's David Hilliard, prominent historian, novelist, journalist and filmmaker Tariq Ali, Former Guantanamo prisoner Moazzam Begg and dozens of other speakers from Marxism 2008 and all previous Marxisms going back to 2002. I do not consider myself a pure Marxist, but over the last several years I have listened to dozens of events podcast from the festival and a lot of the ideas are quite worthwhile. One of these years I'll even attend the thing in person.
Also, the Communist Manifesto is really worth rereading. The recent global economic collapse has Karl Marx looking like a prophet.
