EU referendum

spotAfter the EU referendum...get the Tories out!

Whatever the referendum result, working and middle class people will still have to fight austerity cuts to our living standards and privatisation of our public services.

spotBHS pensions insult

Some 20,000 members of the BHS pension scheme are concerned to find their pensions from the failed firm are now in the Pension Protection Fund, meaning they will receive less than expected.

LGBT liberation

spotSolidarity to end LGBT-phobia

Pride month 2016 comes at a time of increased attacks on LGBT people - not least the horrific massacre in Orlando. While there have been steps forward in social attitudes and legal rights, genuine equality remains elusive. The Socialist Party fights for the liberation of all oppressed sexualities and gender identities - and the root cause of oppression and division: capitalism. Two members of the Socialist Party's LGBT group, an acronym we use in the broadest, most inclusive sense, take stock of the fight.

spotBFAWU conference 2016: "A council of war"

The BFAWU bakers' union conference 12-16 June in Southport felt like a real council of war. This is a union with 20,000 members - that is numerically smaller than others - but huge ambition to defend them at a time when it is under siege from the food employers who want to protect their profits.

Refugee solidarity

spotConvoy to Calais: Outrageous blocking of aid for refugees

On 18 June, a convoy to Calais of 250 vehicles, including cars, lorries and minibuses set off to deliver solidarity and aid to refugees. It had been planned for months but the organisers received a letter two days before, in effect banning the convoy because of "heightened security" in France.

spotMiddle East: Isis under pressure on several fronts

Working classes will take to road of mass struggle again: The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis) is under attack in and around the last big three cities it holds in Iraq and Syria - Fallujah, Mosul and Raqqa - and is also struggling to hold on to Sirte, its main base in Libya.

spotStay Voiceless: Manics' punk spirit is alive and well

Music review: Stay Voiceless: 'Those kids have no idea whatsoever of what went on at Stalingrad' is a song title that leaves you as curious as the name is long. You certainly take away more from it than the three minutes 32 seconds dose of punk rock you get.

spotParents in Leeds discuss attacks on education

"I want my children's education to not be jam-packed full of pointless tests that I can't do!" was just one of the posters filled in by angry parents at a public meeting in Harehills, Leeds on 9 June.
