Student members of Socialist Alternative (US co-thinkers of the Socialist Party) have been to the forefront of key campaigns for fossil fuel divestment, against sexual assault on campus, the #MillionStudentMarch for free college last year, and Black Lives Matter on campuses.

As a result of these struggles Socialist Alternative is launching Socialist Students, a nationwide initiative to help build the socialist movement in schools and on campuses across the country.

CWI member Sally Tang Mei-ching will appear in court on 1 September in a case brought by Hong Kong's scandal-prone transport and property corporation, MTR. She is charged with two offences that carry the maximum penalty of six month's imprisonment and a HK$7,000 (685) fine. This is a clearly a case of political persecution against a spokesperson for a well-known anti-big business and anti-establishment political organisation.
