Solidarity with junior doctors: TUC call a national demonstration now!

The BMA's junior doctor committee meets on 7 May to discuss future action following the latest, escalated round of strikes on 26 and 27 April which included a full withdrawal of labour for the first time. The meeting should include a call to the TUC general council to back the junior doctors by calling a national demonstration. This demand was put forward by the civil servants' union PCS and firefighters' union FBU but was scandalously rejected by the TUC on 27 April. The TUC has, at every turn, left the junior doctors' struggle isolated.

Jeremy Corbyn addressing a demonstration in support of the junior doctors and teachers

The furore around charges of anti-Semitism engulfing the Labour Party is, in reality, an orchestrated and cynical new stage of the campaign by the right-wing pro-capitalist wing of the Labour Party to try and prepare the ground for ditching Jeremy Corbyn at the earliest possible opportunity.

Hillsborough verdict - a magnificent testimony to courage and fortitude

The recent verdict of the inquests into the Hillsborough football stadium disaster of 1989, which killed 96 people vindicates the 27-year campaign for the truth, which battled against establishment lies and slurs on the victims. Tony Mulhearn, who was an anti-cuts, socialist city councillor in Liverpool from 1984 to 1987, responds.

Junior doctors staged their first full walkout in NHS history from 8am to 5pm on 26 and 27 April. This momentous escalation was in response to Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt's continued refusal to negotiate. Public support for the strike remains high, despite media attempts to unnerve doctors.

Queen reaches 90: abolish the monarchy

We congratulate Mrs Windsor on reaching 90 - after travelling the world, and being waited on hand and foot, at the expense of Britain's workers. There will be no place for the feudal institution of the monarchy in a socialist society.
