SWP Calls for Campaign for Corbyn to Organise a ‘Left-wing Brexit’.
British ‘sovereigntists’ demonstrate en masse for Left Brexit.
The various Trotskyist groups in the UK, strengthened with growing mass support and popularity, have been offering Jeremy Corbyn well-meant advice recently.
Socialist Worker has just penned a carefully worded letter to those backing the Labour leader.
Charlie Kimber National Secretary of the Socialist Workers Party offers many tips but this is the most important one:
The best way for Jeremy to beat back the right and win the next election is to head up a much higher level of fightback in the workplaces and the street.
Take note the TUC!
He follows up earlier advice to the Trade Unions – at the end of August he stated, “Pressure to repeal the Trade Union Act should be part of the debate about Brexit.”
Take note, David Davis!
Indeed, should being a modal verb with all kinds of potential meanings, chiefly, what ought to happen and is not happening now.
Or in this case, unlikely to happen at all.
Kimber offers this suggestion.
…he could set out a programme for a left wing Brexit and call meetings and demonstrations to battle for it.
What do we want? Left-wing Brexit now!
It trips off the tongue… It sets hearts glowing.
You can visualise a sea of demonstrators, SWP placards, and….Jeremy Corbyn.
Who campaigned against Brexit.
Kimber finishes his letter with this sage advice,
..in the end power doesn’t lie in parliament. It lies in the economic ownership and control by the bosses and the unelected army, the police and the state.
The only way we can combat economic sabotage from the multinationals or the reaction of the state would be mobilisation of workers on a vast scale.
It would need strikes and occupations and monster demonstrations.
It would require politics dragged from the parliamentary chambers into the streets. That’s why I think we need independent revolutionary organisation.
We await the long drag.
