Roe Vs Wade: Handmaid’s Tale 1 – Liberalism: 0

The US Supreme Court’s onslaught against women in overturning Roe v Wade is not just an impending death knell of American liberalism, but a wake-up call to the myth of ‘Rights’. The next targets in the US are avowedly proclaimed as fertility, contraception, gender identity, and civil rights across the gender and sexuality spectrum. Speech and…

Escalate! coordinate!

Why a general strike is better than a General Strike.

Modernisation (meaning sackings) and reform of labour practices (meaning sackings) have left the workers of the rail and transport industry nowhere else to go than lose pay and withdraw their labour. The sacrifice is theirs. A list of what ballots await; are taking place; being considered, or wildcat actions without formal TUC recognition, would just…

Who are ‘the public’ ?

The current rail strike is the first major national industrial dispute for a decade, since the Public Sector anti-austerity strikes of 2011 which accounted for nearly 400,000 lost working days. Then, as now, the apparent victim was this illusionary concept of ‘the public’. Inconvenience it seems is the new terrorism.The government’s response as…

No gods no masters – for a damn good reason!

Just when we thought it was safe to focus on real people struggling to work, keep warm, to stay housed and be fed, despite a war, religion steps forward to cry vengeance and create a fantasy threat of heaven or hell. The apparently worse than indifferent film (20% on Rotten Tomatoes), ‘Lady of Heaven’. brings a 7th century theocratic blood feud…

Revolutionary Defeatism

Why defeat matters more than victory… Revolutionary Defeatism is a primary principle for anarchist internationalists. Acting locally and coordinating globally against imperialist war is the internationalist task and responsibility of social revolutionary militants and our class everywhere. But what does it mean? The term, coined in the first world…

Vote of no confidence ?

What does the vote of no confidence result say for electoral politics? Boris Johnson has just won his vote of no confidence in the Houses of Commons, 211 in favour to 148. Over 40% of Tory MPs voted against him, but 63% of the country believe that he should resign, while only 25% had faith in him in February. While this is a very slim win for Johnson…

“Anarchists” who forget the principles. Statement by KRAS-IWA

English: The section of the International Workers’ Association in the region of Russia calls for a boycott of provocateurs and delators who hide behind the name of “anarchists” and denounce the activists of our organization. Our position against the war waged by the capitalist oligarchies for the repartition of the “post-Soviet space” is met…

No War! No Peace!

No War! No Peace! Medz Yeghern; Shoa; Naqba, Anfal. Four words brought to us since 1915 to describe the mass annihilation of a people. A holocaust or genocide. The latter word is legal and specific, a compromise with Stalin in 1945 to exclude his mass slaughter of ‘opponents’ or ethnicities on class or political grounds, from criminal investigation…

At the Cafe Public Meeting: Enough is Enough- The Cost of Living Crisis

Register at: [] Whilst many of us are suffering badly because of hikes in energy and food bills and dwindling incomes, members of the House of Commons each had their wages boosted by £2,212-a-year, with their salaries rising to £84,144 from £81,932 on April 1st. In the Scottish Parliament, MSP salaries rose to £64,470. The Royal Family, too, were…

Interesting Times

A perfect storm is forming in British society, as a result of a number of factors-the Covid pandemic, the war in the Ukraine and Brexit. Twinned with this is the ongoing crisis in the ruling Tory Party, the lack of appeal of the Labour Party, the oncoming crisis in the British monarchy with the end of Elizabeth’s reign looming and the unpopularity…

Delivery riders protest against immigration raid

The Metropolitan Police conducted an immigration raid against delivery riders waiting for orders.in Ashwin Street in Dalston in the East End of London on May 14th. There have been months of police harassment targeting riders as part of Hackney Labour Council’s plans to gentrify Ashwin Street. The police attempted to arrest a rider but hundreds of…

Post office workers strike over jubilee weekend

Post Office workers working at 114 Crown Post Offices, the post offices that are still owned by the State, are due to strike on Saturday June 4th and on Monday June 6th. After having endured a pay freeze last year, workers have been offered a ludicrous 2% pay rise. In addition supply and administration workers, including those who transport money to…

On london underground too . . .

Tube station workers were set to walk out on a 24 hour strike on Monday June 6th against threatened job cuts. Transport for London (TfL) is planning swingeing job cuts to pay for the funding of the Covid pandemic. These cuts would involve 600 jobs. In addition TfL is pushing flexible working which would put huge pressure on tube workers. Support is…

Rail strike picks up head of steam

The recent ballot for strike action by members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union resulted in extremely high numbers in favour. Despite the campaigns by the government and media this was a historic result.The ballot involved workers on Network Rail and 13 Train Operating Companies (TOCs) and demonstrates the deep anger among rail workers…

The wildcat prowls – increase in unofficial strikes

300 construction workers went on wildcat strike for 2 days at the Ineos refinery at Saltend, Hull on 11th and 12th May. Their employer, the contractor Altrad, has been consistently paying out wages late, awarding wrong wage sums, etc, resulting in some workers owed thousands of pounds because of mistakes going back more than nine weeks. The workers…

Anti-war resistance in Russia

The Ukrainian tennis player Sergiy Stakhovsky recently commented on the lack of resistance to war within Russia, saying: “”In the first few weeks I honestly believed that the Russians, once they saw what the army was doing, when they’re watching the destruction of cities, the bombing of cities such as Kharkiv and Kyiv that they would go out and…

Cracks appearing- the monarchy and the FA Cup Final

We have taken several looks at the current state of the British monarchy in articles on this website. As Elizabeth’s reign draws to an end, we see the edifice of the royal family looking increasingly flimsy and ramshackle. Signs of this could be seen in the miscalculation of Elizabeth in having Andrew accompany her at the memorial service to Prince…

Conversion Therapy Must End

The UK government recently reaffirmed, in the Queen’s Speech, given by proxy parasite-in-chief, Charles, its intention not to ban conversion therapy when performed on transgender people. And indeed, the legislation will only protect gay people from conversion therapy if the victim is under-age or does not consent.Campaigners, several major mental…

Hungry for power

“…they make a desert and call it peace.” Tacitus.The world is not short of food. We always produce more than we need – scarcity itself is generally ‘manufactured’ but rarely to the point of global crisis. So what has happened? Most of the world’s grain and pulse crops haven’t disappeared – they have been sequestered, kidnapped, held…

GMB in pact with Deliveroo to undermine grassroots organising

The online food delivery company, Deliveroo, have fought every attempt at self-organisation by their couriers since around 2016. Unions such as the Independent Workers of Great Britain (IWGB) and, in some regions, the Couriers Network of the Industrial Workers of the World, were active in defending the rights of some of the most precariously employed…

Are we at war?

Over a million households destitute with thousands more soon to lose the roof over their heads. Food supplies running short or becoming too expensive to buy. Refused refugees lying in the streets whilst a warmongering leader condemned as a criminal clings to power, ramping up the repressive tools of the state to crush and imprison those who non violently…
