Bernie Sanders in front of the US flag

At a special event, live at Oxford Playhouse and livestreamed globally, Bernie Sanders will be in conversation with Owen Jones.

Over the course of his 40-year political career, Sanders has twice stood for the Democratic presidential nomination, gaining prominence for his passionate leadership of the progressive movement. The longest-serving independent in US Congress, he has fought for universal healthcare, workers’ rights, the abolition of student fees and the anti-war movement.

In his new book, It’s OK to be Angry About Capitalism, Sanders takes on the 1%, arguing that uncontained greed has fuelled a system rigged against ordinary people. Our economic order allows three billionaires to control more wealth than the bottom half of our society, the super-rich can buy elections, and our energy system rewards the very corporations causing the climate crisis. How can we allow this? And what is the way forward?

Join Sanders in conversation with Owen Jones, as he presents his vision for fundamental economic and political change – arguing that this is not a utopian fantasy, but democracy as we should know it.
