spotStep up the campaign to back Corbyn's fight

It's a victory - reflecting enormous pressure from Labour members and trade unionists - that the attempt to stop Jeremy contesting a new Labour leadership election has been defeated.

Chilcot report

spotChilcot Iraq report: More piles of evidence against the blood-soaked war for oil

The 2.6 million-word Chilcot report in essence acknowledges that the devastating war on Iraq and occupation was a completely unjustifiable act of military aggression, by making it clear that it was not necessary.

spotAngry prison officers walk out over reforms

Prison officers in England and Wales staged unofficial walkouts on 8 July in protest against proposed reforms. The Prison Officers Association (POA) is angry that its members have not been consulted over the government's plans to change the way prisoners are supervised - which it believes could lead to redundancies.

spotSpain: Disappointment for left in re-run general election

The results of the 26 June re-run general elections in Spain were without doubt very disappointing for many activists, and for broad layers of workers and youth. All opinion polls pointed to the much-coveted 'sorpasso' - ie the alternative left overtaking the ex-social democratic PSOE as the main opposition to the right-wing PP (People's Party).
