Pride, which depicts the solidarity shown by activists in the lesbian and gay community in the mid 80s towards the miners struggle, has a touching, profound meaning for 'solidarity' at its heart.

Unite Against Fascism (UAF) has called a vigil in Rotherham for Saturday September 13 under the slogans, ‘EDL not welcome in Rotherham’ and ‘Justice for the victims - we will not let the racists divide us’.
The world political situation is characterised by increasing chaos and wars, which are concentrated in a large geographic area that runs eastwards all the way from West Africa to the borders of China.
The ceasefire deal agreed yesterday between Israel and the Palestinians represents a victory for the resistance movement. After 51 days of a relentless offensive Israel has had to stop its aggression and end its massacres and destruction in Gaza. This is a cause for celebration.
The following article by Matthew Willgress, about the concrete help Venezuela and its allies are offering Palestine in contrast to Western complicity with Israel’s attacks on Gaza, was originally published by The Morning Star.
The Venezuelan Foreign Affairs Ministry has been transformed into a hub of activity over recent weeks as Venezuelans responded en masse to their revolutionary government’s call to provide donations for the people of Gaza.

Labour’s recent National Policy Forum was a missed opportunity on economic policy, one with potentially grave consequences. There was no attempt to address the economic crisis that Labour will inherit in 2015. As a result, the Labour leadership has also made it harder to win an overall majority next May, even when the Tories are flat-lining close to 30 per cent in the polls shows they cannot possibly win.

The re-election of Obama as US President rather than a right-wing creationist Republican in hock to the Tea Party movement has naturally pleased progressive opinion in the West.

Following the mass protest on the weekend of 1st/2nd October, hundreds of primarily young people remain camped out in Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park under the slogan of ‘Occupy Wall Street’, and calling for action against the banks to alleviate poverty and unemployment.
While the precise demands of the protests are vague and varied, there is no doubt about the overall character of the mobilisations – they reject that the American people should be forced to pay for an economic crisis made on Wall Street.
The mobilisations in Wisconsin in response to Republican proposals to strip public sector workers of collective negotiating rights indicate that the US working class may just be beginning to stir from the slumber that has gripped it through three decades of assault on its living standards.
A demonstration held on Saturday 12th March after the Republicans found a way to force their legislation through despite the Democrats’ blocking tactics saw a demonstration up to 100,000. Initial large protests were further galvanised by the decision of the Democrat members of the state legislature to render the body inquorate and absent themselves. In order not to be subject to subpoena they had to go outside the borders of the state.
