Our Rosa Luxemburg – International Conference

Since 1996 the International Rosa Luxemburg Conference has taken place on the second Saturday in January in Berlin. It was initiated by the nationwide Marxist, independent daily newspaper ‘junge Welt’.  Focuses of the event are lectures and discussions about experience, analyses and activities of left movements and parties worldwide, as well as about developments and political struggles in Germany.

Almost 2.000 people of all ages meet at the Rosa Luxemburg Conference to discuss the relevance of the work done by Rosa Luxemburg, about left theory and politics, about history and presence of anti-imperialist movements and perspectives of social changes. Lecturers and visitors of the conference are from different political contexts, but all of them are united in search of ways to burst the murderous neo-liberal development, as well as the will to bear down capitalism and the belief in the necessity of a socialistic perspective. Not by chance the spectrum of the conference visitors complies with the readership of ‘junge Welt’.

In the main international guests are invited for lectures, generally only one speaker comes from Germany. Language barriers are resolved by simultaneous translation; normally conference languages are English, Spanish and German. Moreover about 30 organizations, parties and publishers introduce themselves at information booths.

On the day after the conference the huge demonstration in honour of Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht takes place in Berlin. Many visitors take the opportunity and combine both dates with each other.
