Ireland

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...

Join the fight for solidarity!

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. Profit before people; "wealth-creation"...

Unions in the pandemic

Workplace activists in Workers' Liberty met via Zoom on Saturday 30 May 2020, for a joint meeting of Workers' Liberty's industrial “fractions”, groups of members in particular industries and sectors. Workers' Liberty currently has four industrial fractions – school workers; civil servants; higher education workers; and rail workers – and two cross-industrial union fractions – Unison, covering local government and health; and Unite, covering a range of industries and sectors.

What's in the bag?

In Eric Ambler’s novel about the consolidation of Stalinist control in Eastern Europe in the 1940s, Judgement on Deltchev, the narrator says: “I know a lot about Pashik now. I know, for instance, that the black dispatch case that he carried so importantly rarely contained anything but a stale meat sandwich and a revolver”. We are outside the time and period when the dispatch case was a symbol of status. And not at that pitch of political conflict in which, so memoirs tell us, the learned Russian Marxist Georgi Plekhanov always, when still in Russia and not yet in exile, carried brass knuckles...
