Calling All Comrades!

Roll up, roll up, the Carnival of Socialism is coming to town! Well, to AVPS anyway. There won't be any coconut shies or hook-a-ducks, but the carnival promises top quality socialist analysis and wry subversive commentary. But this will be a little different from the recent crop of carnivals. The same old round up of the best of leftyblogland is still on offer, but with an added twist of a theme. Cast your mind back to the end of last month. Sunny Handal of Pickled Politics and Liberal Conspiracy fame hosted in association with The Graun a shindig for liberal and lefty bloggers. This got me thinking about leftwing blogging in general. So priority will be given to contributions that look at how important the internet is for our campaigning, what comrades get out of blogging, why isn't there more bloggers from the 57 varieties of the far left, the state of left blogging and its future ... I think you get the picture by now.

The carnival will hit the streets on the 8th or 9th August. Let me know if you want something included via the comments or email.
