Phone: 020 7394 8923.

    Northern Ireland is in chronic communal conflict. For there to be a democratic solution, a wider framework than Northern Ireland is needed.

    The only programme which accommodates the rights of both communities without infringing on the rights of either is a federal united Ireland with regional autonomy for the mainly Protestant north-east, linked in a voluntary confederation with Britain. That is a programme on which class-conscious Irish workers, Protestant and Catholic, can be united. And only a united working class can win full democracy and the socialist "levelling-up" which makes it viable

    Why you should join the AWL

    In Britain today, one child in three grows up in poverty, in a household with less than half the average income. In 1968, the figure was only one in 10.

    Thousands are homeless on the streets, while 600,000 dwellings stand empty. Millions are jobless, while those with jobs have to work longer and longer hours.

    Health care, state education, and public services are ruined by cuts and privatisation, while the wealth of the rich snowballs.

    Workplace stress escalates, under new technologies which, rationally used, should ease it.

    The world of online hate

    In 2013, the Australian journalist Ginger Gorman became the subject of an online hate campaign.

    In 2010, she had interviewed two gay men, seemingly an ordinary couple, about their adoption of a young boy. Three years later the men were convicted of child sexual exploitation; they had been involved in an international paedophile network.

    Naturally Gorman was mortified that she had, however inadvertently, given these men a platform. But a few days after the conviction Gorman began to be inundated by tweets from ″conservatives″ saying she was a paedophile collaborator, and, equally horrifying to

    Workers’ Liberty students have been at Freshers’ Fairs across the country this month.

    At many we met students involved in the Hong Kong protests with whom we will be organising campus meetings to discuss the democracy movement and organise solidarity actions.

    Lots of new students were impressed with the role we played in passing policy in support of free movement and migrants’ rights at Labour conference. Lots wanted to check we were against Brexit before signing up.

    We are organising weekly public meetings, reading groups and paper sales at Greenwich, Birkbeck, UCL, Cambridge, Sheffield and

    Workers' Liberty summer camp 2019

    Published on: Wed, 14/08/2019 - 11:36

    Fifty friends and supporters of Workers’ Liberty gathered in the hills of West Yorkshire for our annual summer camp on 8-11 August.

    Although storms were forecast, socialists of all ages enjoyed wild swimming in a nearby waterfall, hiking, trips on the canals and steam railways of the surrounding valleys, football, and our annual pub quiz and talent show.

    Longtime socialist Bruce Robinson ran a presentation on African Jazz; we learned about the history of Esperanto in the European workers’ movement; and we enjoyed talks from Deliveroo strikers, Nama’a al-Mahdi the Sudanese revolutionary

    Morning Star: “Clive Lewis branded ‘out of order’ by RMT’s Mick Cash”

    Published on: Sun, 31/03/2019 - 10:47

    This article in the Morning Star (published on 29 March) defended remarks made by Eddie Dempsey at a recent "Full Brexit" rally, by way of inaccuracies and misleading remarks including about Workers' Liberty. That article has now been taken down from their online publication.

    Clive Lewis was branded “out of order” by RMT general secretary Mick Cash today after the Labour MP promoted an article calling a leading trade unionist a “Tommy Robinson apologist.” Mr Cash demanded the Norwich South MP apologise for sharing an article that labelled RMT activist Eddie Dempsey a supporter of the far-right

    Issue 498 will go to press Thu 7 March; issue 499, on Tue 19 March

    Published on: Fri, 01/03/2019 - 20:48


    A change from our regular schedule:

    We will print the paper Solidarity 498 later than usual in the week, on Thursday 7 March.

    This is so that much of the distribution of that issue of the paper can be done at the Labour for a Socialist Europe conference on 9 March, rather than by couriers and post. We expect many of our readers and sellers to be attending that conference.

    Subscribers and sellers not attending the conference will have their papers posted out at usual, but on Friday 8 March rather than Wednesday 6 March.

    Solidarity 499 will go to press on
