Long before the Occupy movement, modern cities had already become the central sites of revolutionary politics, where the deeper currents of social and political change rise to the surface. Consequently, cities have been the subject of much utopian thinking. But at the same time they are also the centers of capital accumulation and the frontline for struggles over who controls access to urban resources and who dictates the quality and organization of daily life. Is it the financiers and developers, or the people?" - Rebel Cities, David Harvey (Verso Books)

Join Bristol Stokes Croft Socialist Worker Party Branch for a meeting discussing the role and importance of 'The City' in the Capitalist system, how cities effect our lives, the way we work, live and play and importantly how we can organise the urban working class to over throw capitalism.
