About

We have had five years of crisis, five years where no alternative has been able to win support despite the obvious failures of the current political and economic regime, with serious human and environmental consequences.

Can we do better? Can the Left win widespread support for our ideas and build an alternative society? Can we make socialism more than a nice idea? The Left Forum invites you to contribute your views on the state of progressive politics and to discuss how we can do better.

The forum will be participatory and exploratory, and will aim to ask and answer key questions about what levels of political agreement are possible, what forms of organisation are useful and what tactics and strategies will be effective.

We hope that you will join us and help define the future of the Left in Ireland.

  1. Are you sending out a report of the forum? I was only able to stay for the first half

    Anything going on now? The most recent date seem to be May ’13. Has the Forum died already? Hopefully not.

    • The forum has not died already thankfully 🙂 We are launching various branches/discussion groups around the country at the moment and are planning on an event for October or November. We will have more information up on the website soon!
