Yanis Varoufakis meets Owen Jones

The global crisis of COVID-19 presents an opportunity for a radical rethink of Britain as we know it.

Whether exposing Britain’s powerful elites in The Establishment or defending the white working class in Chavs, fighting for equality and social justice as a Guardian columnist and broadcaster, Owen Jones may be the most influential and widely respected political journalist of his generation.

In this livestream event with DiEM25 co-founder Yanis Varoufakis, he’ll give an unflinchingly honest, insider’s account of Labour’s electoral defeat last year — and explore where the Left can go next in the new world we find ourselves in. We have the opportunity to build a fairer country and a more equal world, but if our time is to come, then we must learn from our past. Owen says:

“if there’s anything I’ve learned from my family’s decades of political commitment, it’s that history is not linear, a tale of victories followed by successes and yet more victories; but often defeats, setbacks, followed by victories, then more defeats and setbacks. Finally, you might get somewhere approximating to where you’re going to. It’s called a struggle for a reason.”

This event takes place at 18:30 GMT / 19:30 CET and includes access to a replay video available 48 hours after the event to enjoy with no time limit. Register here!
