AWL has moved offices. New address!

Published on: Sun, 30/01/2011 - 23:24

AWL's new address is 20E Tower Workshops, Riley Road, London SE1 3DG.

The new office is better situated, in better physical condition, and better set up for our tasks than the old one.

There are still things to do on setting up in the new place; please take this into account if we have a few glitches in the settling-in period.

Phone: 020 7394 8923.

Moving has cost us a lot of money, and there are further expenses to come. Especially if you value the new weekly format of Solidarity, please contribute to our fund appeal: see

    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.

    Sponsor our Sheffield-Manchester ride!

    Published on: Wed, 04/12/2019 - 18:12

    Hannah Thompson and Dan Rawnsley from Sheffield will be doing a sponsored bike ride to raise funds for Workers’ Liberty on 15 February 2020.

    The ride will be from Sheffield to Manchester, a slightly shorter distance but, because of the hills, a much harder ride than the one from London to Cambridge which raised £1250 in October.

    We’ve set £1917 as a provisional target for total sponsorships this time, and it has raised £140 in the first few hours of the website going live. Add your contribution here.

    Our fund-drive total so far stands at £15,750.93. We need another £9,249.07 to reach our £25

    Sponsor us: Cycling over the peaks for socialism!

    Published on: Tue, 03/12/2019 - 15:08

    Sponsor Dan and Hannah to cycling over the peaks for the cause of socialism, Sheffield to Manchester on February 15.

    On the 15th February 2020, Dan and Hannah will be cycling from Sheffield, through the Peak district, to Manchester. The distance is around 50 miles or 80 km, with some serious climbs.

    Like this cycle ride, but on a much larger scale, the fight for socialism requires some serious climbs, and charting our course through hills and mountains on the way.

    The socialist left in the Labour campaign

    Published on: Thu, 21/11/2019 - 00:34


    The Tory campaign for this general election has more money, but the Labour campaign has more people.

    Tens of thousands of Labour volunteers are taking to the streets and the phone-banks.

    As socialist internationalists, we are with those volunteers. The labour movement is our movement, and we want it to win in this election against the Tories and Lib Dems.

    We also have more to do than adding our numbers to the general labour movement mobilisation. We have political tasks.

    The road to socialism, in our view, fundamentally goes through working-class organisation and struggle in the workplaces and

    Help us raise £25,000

    Published on: Wed, 20/11/2019 - 23:19

    Thanks this week to Ian Townson, £1,000, Linda and Harold Youd £50, and John Cunningham, £20. Their contributions bring our fund-drive total to £15,460.93.

    We have another £9,539.07 to raise to reach our £25,000 target. Less than £10,000 to go!

    Three comrades from Sheffield tell us they’re planning a sponsored bike ride. Since October’s sponsored bike ride, by a single rider, raised £1,250, we should have a good chance of raising several thousands from that.

    We’ve already spent a lot of money on buying leaflets for the general election campaign from Labour for a Socialist Europe — and now

    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
