The Socialist 27 July 2016, No compromise with Labour right

#KeepCorbyn

spotNo compromise with Labour right wing

The next few months will decide the fate of the Labour Party. Although he claims to be 'as radical as Jeremy', leadership challenger Owen Smith is in reality the candidate of those with a vested interest in keeping Labour as a New Labour-style version of the Tories

spot'Defend Corbyn' rally

spotCorbyn's 'rock-star welcome' in North West

spotEnd Victorian working conditions

Trade union fightback needed: The report into Sports Direct's working practices by a House of Commons select committee shows the much acclaimed protection of workers' employment rights by the EU is worthless without the traditional workers' organisations - the trade unions - being strong enough to enforce legislation.

Socialist Party feature

spotEurope and the workers' movement after Brexit

Europe - Britain in particular - is now at the forefront of political developments. Because of the 'weight' of British capitalism, Brexit represents a giant boulder dropped into a lake. There will be an immediate ripple effect but the repercussions will be felt for months and years.

spotWhy the Socialist Party opposed the EU

spotTurkey: no to military rule, no to Erdoğan's rule

The recent failed military coup d'état in Turkey has been followed by a massive purge of the state machinery and assault on democratic rights by right-wing president Recep Erdoğan. By arresting thousands of people, sacking thousands of state employees, imposing a three month 'state of emergency' and mobilising his AKP members, Erdoğan is ruthlessly accelerating his drive towards an authoritarian regime. Workers' and left organisations must mobilise to resist these draconian moves and fight for democratic rights.

spotBarcelona 1936: the people's Olympics

For a brief moment 80 years ago, in a hint of what Spain as a whole would become, Barcelona became the focus of opposition to fascism. In July 1936, 6,000 athletes arrived in the city, greeted by banners and bunting welcoming them. They were no ordinary athletes; the socialist hurdlers and the anarchist shot putters were there for the Olimpiada Popular, the People's Olympiad.

spotFawley refinery strike against 'race to bottom'

On 14 July workers from contractors NICO at the Fawley refinery, members of Unite, took strike action against the super-exploitation of migrant workers from Italy and Bulgaria, being paid £48 for a 10 hour shift, instead of £125.
