International news in brief

Video: A Marxist view of Modi's Hindutva

Peter Taaffe discusses with Jagadish Chandra, New Socialist Alternative (CWI in India). The interview provides analysis of the present situation in India from an internationalist perspective.

Since the advent of Modi to power in 2014, BJP reactionaries have let loose a reign of terror through their multi-pronged organisation. What response must the left counter with?

Ireland: General election final push

An Anti Austerity Alliance (AAA) canvassing team (above) in the Irish general election. The election takes place on 26 February. The next issue of the Socialist will carry a full analysis of the results, including how Socialist Party Ireland members fared, as part of the AAA. A brief report will be posted on the CWI website soon after the results are published.


Turkey: CWI national conference

Members of Sosyalist Alternatif (CWI, Turkey) at their first national conference. The meeting took place at a challenging time for Marxists, with the country bitterly polarised under Erdogan's authoritarian rule and the spill over from Syria's war.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

  • The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
  • When the health crisis subsides, we must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.
