As the class struggle sharpens in Britain, with industrial action spreading from one sector to another, Marxist students are getting organised to build solidarity and support for striking workers. Students and workers – unite and fight!
UK campuses have been shut down over the last week by a national walkout of UCU members. The Marxist Student Federation has been active in mobilising students to offer support and solidarity. Workers and students: unite and fight!
The UCU strikes are kicking off today and the MSF has been building for the strikes amongst students across the country.
Early last month, the University of York (UoY) hired a debt collection agency to target international students involved in the previous rent strike. The intimidation they have faced, and their militant response, should serve as a lesson to all students wanting to fight.
Philosophy might seem irrelevant to the fight for revolution. But in truth, it is only by having a correct, scientific outlook that we can transform the world around us.
Monday marked the 105th anniversary of the October Revolution. These 10 days shook the world and spurred on proletarian movements in countries far and wide. Over a century later and the Russian Revolution one of the most distorted events in history. The international bourgeois work actively to confuse and lie about the Russian Revolution. As Marxists, we must take a more serious approach. What is the real history of the revolution and how can we replicate it today?
This All Hallow’s Eve – when all through the night the masses stir – the Tories and bosses will be lying awake in their beds. For of late, a frightful spectre has been stalking the land: the spectre of communism.
The development of class consciousness is of prime interest to Marxists. The working class runs society, as Ted Grant said “not a wheel turns, not a lightbulb shines without the kind permission of the working class”. Despite this fact, the leadership of the left fails to see the development of class consciousness in the working class. This leads to demoralisation and pessimism. On the other hand, Marxists have complete optimism; not in the idea that capitalism can change, but that the working class can overthrow this decrepit system.
This year’s Revolution Festival was a showcase of optimism and enthusiasm, with over 700 attendees from across Europe gathering to discuss why Marx was right. Comrades left excited and energised, determined to build the forces of Marxism.
#RevFest2022 – a three-day festival of Marxist ideas – begins tomorrow. This year’s event comes at a critical moment, with titanic events shaking society across the world. So get your ticket today, and join the revolution!
The Marxist Student Federation (MSF) now represents the strongest and most active student Marxists in Britain. This presents us with an important lesson, to produce and educate new Marxists up and down the country. Here is a report showing the strength of our first few weeks on campus this year!
One way to understand whether a society is progressing or regressing is to look at how it treats education.
