The Socialist Society is proud to announce that Joe Higgins, Socialist Party MEP for Dublin, will be speaking at our opening meeting in Queen’s University this year on ‘Europe in Revolt- The Case for Socialism’.

Joe served 2 terms as member of the Irish parliament for Dublin West, during which he played a leading role in a number of workers’ struggles and became known as the ‘real opposition’ to the Fianna Fail government.

Now a Member of the European Parliament for Dublin, he is playing a similar fighting role in Brussels and Strasbourg, opposing the right-wing, bosses’ agenda of the European Union leadership. He has recently visited Greece, witnessing the mass revolt which is taking place there against the government’s austerity programme.
