Founded in 1884, the Edinburgh University Socialist Society is a radical force on campus, bringing together anti-capitalist groups and individuals to discuss what socialism is, and to better equip ourselves in the fight to build a better society. For a brief history of the society check out the Wikipedia article.
We understand the importance of education and outreach, especially at a time when so many people are wondering how and why the current system has let them down so badly. With this in mind we reguarly organise workshops, discussion groups, debates, reading groups, films, skillshares, field trips, socials, and more!
If you're looking to get involved in the anti-capitalist, anti-cuts, and anti-injustice groups and campaigns on our campus this is a great central hub to meet many members of the wider community and to get involved.
We have room for vanguardists, reformers, revolutionaries and those of us unsure as to where we stand. If you want to get involved drop us an email or just walk around campus a bit looking for dangerous radicals and approaching them. While the latter sounds like much more fun I suspect you may have more luck with the former.
And make sure to like our Facebook page!
