The student organization Die Linke.SDS (the student organization of the left party) and the youth organization Linksjugend Solid invite you kindly to participate at our congress "40th anniversary of the student revolt in 1968 - we will win the next struggle".
From the second until the 4th of may we will discuss the implications of the emergence of a new left in 1968 for nowadays. The range of issues will be widespread: From the protests in higher education to cultural liberation and the revival of marxist and critical theory. Among our speakers are veterans of the 68 student revolt as well as critical scientists and political activists from today (e.g. Oskar Lafontaine(president of Die Linke), Leo Panitch (University of Toronto), Rossana Rossanda, Elmar Altvater (University of Berlin), Sabine Zimpel (ATTAC Germany), Alain Krivine (LCR) and Hans-Jürgen Urban(vice-president of trade union IG Metall) Alex Callinicos (Kings College London).
