As part of the Ted Grant centenary celebrations, we publish here a video of Ted's speech at the 1984 Militant Rally. In his speech, Ted explains the contradictions of the capitalist system, the nature of the economic crisis, and the failures of the Thatcher government - and the Keynesian and reformist leaders of the labour movement - to offer a way out for workers and youth - explanations that are just as (if not more) valid today as they were then.
