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?;

Sexism: Macho culture and the lessons we can learn from the Middle East

UKIP: Cameron’s Pandora’s box
