Weekly Worker issue 945 - January 17 2013

category international | anti-capitalism | other press author Thursday January 17, 2013 22:58author by John Cornford - CPGB Report this post to the editors

SWP crisis: Opposition emboldened as demand for recall grows
The leadership can no longer lead - but a positive outcome to the crisis requires more than the removal of the entire CC, argues Paul Demarty

The Socialist Workers Party has been waiting a long time for a revolutionary situation. On some occasions, as with the fatuous ‘All out, stay out’ slogan it advanced to striking public sector workers last winter, it has tried, with dismal results, to force one - or delude itself into thinking there is one. Now, it has got one. But there is only one catch - it is not Britain that has been plunged into such a crisis, but the SWP itself.


Rebellion; Shocking; Victim; Quantity left; Conflict site?; Coining it; Crippled; ‘Anti-Germans’; Erfurt required?;

SWP and women: Countless zigs and zags over women’s oppression

Sexism: Macho culture and the lessons we can learn from the Middle East
How should sexism be combated? Yassamine Mather compares the situation in Britain with the practice of two guerrilla organisations

UKIP: Cameron’s Pandora’s box
With Ukip riding high in the polls, writes Eddie Ford, the Tories are desperate to steal its votes

Fighting fund: Upsurge
Robbie Rix feels that the interest in the CPGB's coverage of the crisis in the SWP proves that the Weekly Worker is serving its purpose

Supplement: Origins of the crisis in the SWP - part two
Third-period Blairism and the necessity of demystifying Bolshevism, Jack Conrad continues his analysis of Cliff and the SWP's politics
