The Socialist - why read it?
The Socialist is different.  Its reports and analysis are brought to you from working-class people engaged in the day-to-day struggles - like those against job cuts and exploitative working conditions, to defend free education, for civil rights and to protect the environment.

Youth and students
Our coverage of the battle against tuition fees has led from the front, providing a strategy to win through mass non-payment of fees. This is backed up with reports about how support for the campaign is growing, and statistics which expose the panic of college authorities that fees will not stick.

Our coverage of industrial disputes gives the workers’ viewpoint. We give strikers’ reports and cover the battle against the right wing union bureaucrats, such as Socialist Party member Roger Bannister’s challenge for UNISON general secretary.

Internationally too, The Socialist reports on struggles around the world. Our correspondents in Seattle provided eyewitness accounts of the successful protests against the World Trade Organisation, highlighting the massive trade union intervention.

Socialist Alternative explained
The Socialist is the voice of working class people, young and old. We expose how and why capitalism causes poverty, inequality and injustice, and we provide the socialist alternative. The Socialist is essential reading for anyone who wants to change the system.
