This remarkable man -- hardworking, dedicated and self-effacing -- had many opponents, but not a single personal enemy. His gentle manner, courteous behaviour, concern for others, and warm concern for humanity obliged even his opponents to hold him in high regard. Tribute to Godfrey Andries Cremer
If we continue to accept the assassination of those deemed to be 'enemies' abroad, how long will it be before British workers are asked to accept the extra-judicial murders of working-class politicians at home as being necessary for our 'security'?
Instead of falling for the capitalists' lies, we need to unite with all those who are standing up against British imperialism in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria and elsewhere. We need to launch a mass campaign of non-cooperation with British imperialism's war crimes. Together, we have the power to ground the drones and stop imperialism's dirty wars, for it is workers who ultimately have to carry out these anti-worker actions.

In the context of the latest US-led military exercises, more and more deadly military equipment is being poured into the Korean tinderbox. Three warships are gathering in the waters just off Korea's coast, and thousands of US soldiers are engaged in full-scale dress-rehearsal for a nuclear war.
Meanwhile, nuclear-capable US B-52 bombers have been practising bombing raids over Korea, awaking memories among the people of the DPRK of how every town and city in their country was flattened by US carpet-bombing raids in the genocidal war of 1950-53. Four million Koreans were killed as a result of imperialism's barbaric assault on their country. >> Read the full statement.
If our rulers really want to do something about the affordable housing shortage, why not set rent controls in the private sector, build lots of new social homes and requisition all those empty 'deluxe' flats?
It is not immigrants, fat people, poor people, smokers, benefit claimers, council-house tenants, hoodies or pensioners who are 'bleeding the country dry' but the free-market-fundamentalist gangsters who rampage all over the globe in search of profit, profit and more profit. Read full leaflet text
A great revolutionary light has been extinguished, but the cause for which President Hugo Chávez fought lives on as his abiding legacy, for it is the finest cause in all the world -- and he served it truly.
It is with profound sorrow that we learned of Comrade Chávez's deteriorating medical condition and death, but his great spirit -- which helped to transform the economic and political relations of his fellow workers, the Venezuelan masses, and the Americas -- lives on. Read full statement text
Delegates at StW's national conferences have repeatedly and overwhelmingly called on StW to mobilise workers for a programme of active non-cooperation. If every union made it their policy to refuse to cooperate with the wars, then workers could refuse to make or move munitions or supplies, could refuse to write or broadcast propaganda, and could refuse to fight in the forces. The wars would collapse! Read full leaflet text
The government wants us to pay the price of preserving the bankers' and billionaires' dying system. It wants us to save capitalism by sacrificing ourselves, our grandparents and our children at the altar of free-market fundamentalism.
But the financial crisis is not of our making; our work can and will create sufficient wealth for everybody to be able to live well. If capitalism will not produce or distribute because there's no profit to be made, then the working class take over production itself. Read updated leaflet text
British workers can actually do a lot more, if we are prepared to use our collective power over the country's economy. The ruling class might give orders, but it is we who are expected to carry them out. If we all refuse, there is not that much they can do.
Neither the capitalists themselves, nor their careerist spivs in Whitehall are about to send their own kids to work in arms factories, to drive trains, to crew cargo ships, to enlist as cannon fodder, or even to print and broadcast their pro-Israel propaganda. Read full leaflet text
Trotsky's attacks on 'Stalinism' were actually just the continuation of his lifelong struggle against Leninism. The counter-revolutionary nature of Trotskyism explains why Trotsky is held up to schoolchildren throughout the imperialist world as the 'real' revolutionary! Read the full leaflet
It needs to be spelt out: the Labour party stands for the defence of British imperialist interests, and it uses its TUC and union placemen to stop workers from doing real damage to those interests, no matter what the human costs at home or abroad. Read the full leaflet
Western imperialist policy on Somalia is nothing to do with pirates or kidnapping. It's all about oil. Since the overthrow of Siad Barre in 1991, Washington has wanted to get its hands on the lucrative oil deals conceded by the president before his departure. Read full leaflet text
All too often, anti-privatisation campaigners leave themselves exposed by a superficial analysis that sees the HASC Bill as the personal project of Lansley himself. Always in the background there lurks the dangerous illusion that every British worker should by now know to avoid like the plague: that if only a Labour government were in office, all would be well.

If it were to be faced by a united working-class movement, the bourgeoisie, who number only a few thousand billionaires and their favourites, knows that it could not survive. Hence the urgent need to divide the masses of the people in addition to intimidating them. Read the full article
In the twenty years since the collapse of the Soviet Union, a new generation of communists and anti-imperialists has grown up, knowing almost nothing about the USSR and the revisionist distortions that led to its downfall. This new pamphlet details those key Khrushchevite distortions of Marxism Leninism in the field of ideology, politics and class struggle.
An understanding of society (theory) and a way of uniting to change it (organisation) are the two things that we need to make a socialist revolution. Ordinary people in Britain have everything to gain by getting involved in this process sooner rather than later. This world isn't working for us and we deserve better!
Not only do we need to campaign against the bad conditions and lack of prospects for working-class people in Britain today, but we need to work for a completely different type of society -- one where people's needs decide everything.
So many problems face this world: environmental catastrophe, poverty, disease, racism and war. They'll never be solved while capitalism remains, but they could all be sorted if society was set up for the benefit of the majority rather than the private gain of a few billionaires.
Our party is different because we consistently apply Marxist science to all areas of our work, and we're not scared to tell it how it is. We refuse to be intimidated by the barrage of lying propaganda that fills BritainŐs mainstream media. It is the capitalists' job to try to stop us from building a socialist society; it is our job to do it anyway!
Challenge your ideas -- challenge their propaganda -- seek the truth -- serve the people -- change the world!
