Marxism 2012: Revolution in the air hosted radical journalist, writer and film-maker John Pilger. Back for his fourth year, Pilger says about the Marxism conference:

“Marxism in Melbourne is now Australia’s premier festival of debate and free speech on issues that are either excluded from or suppressed by the mass media: issues such as the government’s agenda for Indigenous Australians, Palestine and propaganda in its many disguises.”

Pilger is recognized the world over for his investigative journalism. His many awards include:
- British Academy of Film and Television Arts – The Richard Dimbleby Award
- American Television Academy Award (‘Emmy’)
- International Reporter of the Year
- Journalist of the Year

Marxism 2012, hosted by Socialist Alternative (AU) and the International Socialist Organisation of Aotearoa (NZ) was held over the Easter long weekend at the University of Melbourne. It hosted a wide variety of international guest speakers involved in struggles all around the world and a record attendance of 925, cementing it as Australia’s largest left wing political conference. The weekend featured over 60 sessions of discussion and debate on ideas to challenge capitalism in the midst of one of the worst economic crises in history and the shining inspiration of revolution across the Arab spring.

Marxism 2013 will be held over the Easter Weekend of 2013, the 28th to the 31st of March in Melbourne, Australia. To find out more and how to be part of the debate and discussion, visit www.marxismconference.org
