Support the junior doctors - on the frontline in the battle to save the NHS!
The Tories’ attacks on the NHS are intensifying, with huge numbers of NHS staff reporting that the health service is being pushed to breaking point.
To mark this year's centenary of the Easter Rising this website will be carrying a series of articles on the Irish liberation struggle, starting with Lenin on the Irish Rebellion of 1916.
Lenin was the foremost exponent of Marxism of his generation whose leadership was decisive in the success of the Russian Revolution. This was made possible by the development of a theoretical outlook which informed the anti-imperialist wing of the socialist movement which subsequently became the worldwide communist movement.

For the first time in a while, the National Front (NF) made headlines last Saturday. At its demonstration in Dover the NF were openly sieg-heiling — emulating Hitler’s nazis is unlikely to draw large numbers of support.

Corbyn's anti-austerity leadership campaign storms social media
Having secured a place in the Labour Leadership election, Jeremy Corbyn's campaign is galvanising the left within Labour and beyond.
The following article by Michael Burke, on the current crisis of Greece and the international institutions, was originally published by Socialist Economic Bulletin.
The following article by Stephen Bell, on migration and war, was originally published by the Stop the War Coalition.
Issues arising from migration, particularly immigration, are some of the most ideologically loaded questions in British politics. When these questions are related to the wars of British imperialism then the narrative becomes doubly loaded. It will then be helpful to examine the issues historically, in order to cut through prevailing prejudices.
A broad mass movement is being built against austerity. Fiona Edwards, a Student Assembly Against Austerity National Organiser, reports on Saturday’s national demonstration and the next steps in building the fightback.

Jeremy Corbyn and Diane Abbott - challenging Labour's rightward shift
Jeremy Corbyn's success in securing sufficient nominations to contest the Labour leadership election has galvanised the left of the party. The notion that Labour lost May's General Election because it was too 'left' will now be challenged in the contest. Corbyn will campaign for Labour to break with austerity and for a foreign policy independent of US diktats.

Just one month on from the general election the new Tory government has wasted no time in announcing it is intensifying the austerity offensive.
Tories launch new racist offensives
With the election now over, the Tories are decisively reasserting the scape-goating agenda that was suspended for fear of building up UKIP during the election campaign. Various reactionary measures were announced in the Queen's Speech on 27 May, including proposed legislation on 'extremism' and immigration.
The following article by Barry Gray, on Labour’s response to UKIP’s rise, originally appeared on Left Futures.
In the wake of UKIP's electoral advance, both at this year's General Election and last year's European Parliament election, the Labour Party has come under growing pressure, from inside and outside its own ranks, to adapt to UKIP’s anti-immigrant and English nationalist agenda.
