Anniversary of the first issue of Militant: When we started publishing Militant, the Socialist's predecessor, in October 1964, few of our political opponents expected that we would not only continue publication for 50 years, but become an important factor in subsequent battles of the labour movement

Workers need a pay rise. Even Alan Milburn apparently agrees. As 100,000 people marched against low wages, this ex-New Labour minister come coalition-appointed 'social mobility tsar' released a damming report. Britain is becoming 'permanently divided' into haves and have-nots

Hundreds of thousands are striking and marching for better pay. The question of a political voice is also on minds.

How a mass campaign stopped the cuts

The lessons of Liverpool's socialist council 1983-87: Despite crying crocodile tears, Labour-run councils throughout Britain have implemented devastating government cuts in jobs and public services - in some cases with enthusiasm, alienating many working class Labour voters

End poverty, inequality and capitalism: "Britain needs a pay rise" is the demand of the TUC's demonstration on 18 October. The first question to ask is "Which Britain?" The bosses don't need a penny more - they are gorging themselves

Britain needs a pay rise: How can we get it? When the TUC first organised their 'Britain Needs a Pay Rise' demonstration on 18 October, it is hard to believe that they saw it as an integral part of a campaign of co-ordinated strike action

Austerity is failing - but all mainstream parties support it, photo Paul Mattsson

We need ideas to change the world

We need ideas to change the world

And once the budget deficit was wiped out, everyone lived happily ever after. Only in a Disney film? Don't be surprised if Tory ogre George Osborne gets a cameo role as a hero in some sickly sweet Disney flick. After all, the British government has handed Disney almost 170 million to make films here
