The national question is a complicated one and it stays relevant to date. This is a question that has not only occupied Marxists over generations but was a question that was at the forefront of Marx's development as a theorist, activist, and a revolutionary.

In this session we will look at Marx's writings and active solidarity work on the questions of Irish nationalism in the 19th century. We will look at how Marx was involved with the Irish struggle of National Liberation from England. Please join us on November 20th from 3pm to 5pm to discuss and learn about this topic.
