Can socialism make sense?

A new book from Workers’ Liberty which makes the case for socialism.

A new book from Workers’ Liberty which makes the case for socialism. In a time when socialism is the most searched word on the Merriam-Webster dictionary website, more and more people call themselves socialists, and a self-confessed socialist is leader of the Labour Party, this book explores what socialism means, whether it can rise again, how, and why.

It answers questions such as: What about Stalin? Are revolutions democratic? How can we have a planned economy? and is socialism still relevant?

Strike figures for 2015-16 in Britain were the lowest since records began. The Tories have been able to impose their anti-union "Trade Union Act" with only token resistance. While the rich continue to increase their wealth, wages remain low and working-class living standards continue to fall.

A day of discussion and activist training looking at both contemporary and historical struggles as we discuss how labour can organise and fight back.

Nationalise the Big Six! Campaign launch

Nationalise the Big Six!

The Big Six -- British Gas, EDF, npower, E.ON, Scottish Power and SSE -- currently profit from contributing to catastrophic climate change while making us pay extotrionate energy bills (or freeze to avoid the costs).

Nationalisation of their operations offers a way to radically reduce the burning of fossil fuels, to support workers in the transition to renewable energy, and to stop rip-off energy bills.
