    • Wednesday 9th April. Ariadne and the Minotaur told by Cat Wetheril 


Tuesday, 15 April 2014 – 8:00pm – 10:00pm

‘Crimes of Passion in a Socialist Society’ . As socialists, we accept that the vast majority of crimes in our society are property-related and would not exist in a world without money. But what about so-called crimes of passion? Are they also exacerbated or even caused by the frustrations of the way we live, or are feelings such as anger and jealousy instinctive survival strategies and a part of our human nature?

The discussion organised by the Socialist Party of Great Britain will be opened by Clifford Slapper and everyone is invited to explore and contribute ideas.

All welcome. Free admission
