SWP Calls for Left to Get “Act Together” as they channel Bel Littlejohn.
SWP’s New Intellectual Guru.
We are pleased to announce that the SWP has called for “unity” on the left, and for us to get our “act together”.
Latest Socialist Worker.
The left outside the Labour Party has to get its act together.
We’re too fragmented and inward-looking.
We need socialists in every workplace and community and standing in elections, who argue and organise to target the rich, not scapegoat immigrants, Muslims, and people on benefits.
Millions of people are alienated from mainstream politics. But they not anti-political.
When up to 15,000 people gather in George Square in Glasgow for a Scottish independence rally last weekend, when 1,300 meet at a People’s Question Time in east London, when 2,000 listen to Naomi Klein on capitalism and climate change there is no shortage of interest in politics.
We need a stronger left to focus it.
The Socialist Workers Party is fighting for more resistance, against racism and war, for a stronger and more united left, and for a revolutionary alternative at the heart of every struggle.
What could be fairer than that?
As one of the SWP’s most prominent intellectual gurus, Bel Littlejohn would say, “right on!” “Let’s get our act together!.
The Swuppies remain the lodestar of the zeitgeist
Meanwhile this is all they say on the struggle of the beloved people of Kobane.
BRITAIN AND the US are supposed to be backing Kurds fighting Islamic State in Kobane in northern Syria.
But Turkey, a member of Nato and ally to the West, chose last Sunday to murder Kurds.
The Turkish government broke a 20-month ceasefire with the PKK Kurdish group that is fighting Islamic State in Kobane.
It launched bombing raids with F-16 jets against Kurdish bases.
The Turkish Hurriyet newspaper said air raids near the south eastern village of Daglica on Monday caused “heavy casualties”.
The newspapers Cumhuriyet and Milliyet also reported clashes on Monday between the PKK and Turkish troops in the Tunceli area of east-central Turkey.
These outrageous bombing raids and assaults follow brutal suppression of Kurdish protests in solidarity with Kobane.
At least 19 people have been killed by the Turkish state during such protests in the past week and it has introduced curfews.
Yes, that’s all.
