About this Event

Members and supporters of the communist party, socialists, trade unionists and activists from the women's, peace and anti-racist movements are invited to attend the centrepiece of the CP centenary.

This internationalist rally has an amazing line-up with speakers from the British labour movement and representatives of the revolutionary movements from China, South Africa, India and Brazil.

Hear anti apartheid,underground organiser and leader of South Africa's communists, Blade Nzimande - he will be joined in the audience by British volunteers against apartheid who risked their lives in clandestine activity, to secure democracy for the African majority.

Listen to a first-hand report from Sitaram Yechury of the struggle against the Modi governments's divisive and anti democratic citizenship rules. Sitarm will pay tribute to Britain's Meerut triallists, charged with sedition against the Empire for their solidarity activities.

Meet legendary President of the World Peace Counicl, Ms Maria do Socorro Gomes Coelho - a former Brazilian MP who will also talk about the struggle against the Balsonaro government and imperialism.

There will be cultural interludes including a performance by the brilliant Tayo Aluko, "Calling Mr Robeson".

During the event, we will greet the arrival of the Harry Pollitt Brigade cyclathon, which rides between Manchester and London to mark the centenary, and present awards to our oldest member in England, Scotland and Wales.
