Event Details

Join Red Pepper for an evening of discussion and drinks with Susan George at the London book launch of her latest book How to Win the Class War: The Lugano Report II.

Renowned political scientist, writer and activist for social justice, Susan George is visiting the UK from 4-7 December 2013. Susan George is President of the Board of the Transnational Institute (TNI) in Amsterdam, and Honorary President of ATTAC-France. From 1990-95 she served on the Board of Greenpeace International as well as Greenpeace France. She is the author of sixteen widely translated books including How the Other Half Dies: The Real Reasons for World Hunger and The Debt Boomerang.  

How to Win the Class War shows how far world leaders are willing to go in order to save the capitalist system against the interests of the 99%. With creative flair and biting satire, the book puts you in the shoes of the corporate elite and guardians of the capitalist system - and shows just how the powerful are vulnerable to social movements fighting back.


***Food will be available to buy from 18:30 with the discussion starting from 19:00***  

What a book! Susan George exposes the conspiracies and the mindsets that have ensured the nauseating triumph of finance, neocolonialism, sheer wickedness, carbon and pollution today. It will take total anesthesia to read this book and remain on the sidelines.” - Nnimmo Bassey. Friends of the Earth International 

 "Over the years, Susan George's powerful writing has opened many people's eyes to the realities of global capitalism. Now she shows us how and why the rich and powerful of the North continue to win the class war.” - Jayati Ghosh, Jawaharlal Nehru University

With acid wit and somber truths, 'The Lugano Report brilliantly portrays, through the eyes of its imagined but all too realistic planners, a world that may be heading for deep trouble.” - Noam Chomsky, on the 'The Lugano Report' 

This book is an invaluable resource for activists involved in the day to day struggles and provides concrete evidence for what is happening behind the public face of politics.” – John Palmer, former European Editor of the Guardian
