Over 350 members of Socialist Alternative from across the USA met recently for its first ever national summer school. It heard from Socialist Alternative Seattle city councillor Kshama Sawant and Seattle members about their battles for affordable housing. Also, Ginger Jentzen and Minneapolis members spoke about their recent victory for a $15 an hour minimum wage.

In addition there were discussions on US politics, 'Trumpcare', building a new broad party, the role of a revolutionary party, and debate on a Marxist approach to fighting oppression. Members of the CWI also spoke. Everyone left energized to go back to their areas to build campaigns and fight for a socialist world.

On 5 June, Rattvisepartiet Socialisterna (RS - CWI Sweden) members marched again against the deadly violence which recently claimed the life of a teacher in Gothenburg. All our proposals for the demonstration were accepted by 60 trade unions and associations that backed the initiative.

RS members participated - at the front, in the tenants' union and our own CWI bloc - on the demo.
