The Marxist Student Federation is a national organisation of young workers and students who want to overcome capitalism. We fight for a revolutionary change and we need your help! We have Marxist Societies in universities and colleges across the country that you can get involved in. Find out about what our comrades have been up to in this video here.

Capitalism is in crisis and every day we’re seeing new crises arise. Students and workers are bearing the brunt of the dying system. We need to fight this. In order to change the world, we must first understand it. This is why we write and publish articles about current events, theory and historical analysis.

At the Marxist Student Federation, we believe in fighting to change the world. That’s why we fight for the things we believe in. Not only do we fight alongside workers and youth, we fight campaigns of our own on issues we think are important. Stand with us and fight for a better world!

Rent Strike! Fight the University Bosses​
Tell the truth!
Black History Month: Fight For Liberation!
Higher Education Pay: Fight for the full claim!​

Marxist Students up and down the country have been involved in rent strike campaigning. Students have been forced back into University halls in order to keep  up profit. Education should not be a commodity, we need a free education. Fight the University bosses!

The British government have banned teaching anti-capitalist materials in English schools. This is a blatant attempt to stop young people coming to revolutionary conclusions. The Marxist Student Federation is fighting back against this by telling the truth on economics, history and politics. 

The MSF published a series of articles and videos on the origins of slavery; the roots of racism; the black power struggle; from Windrush to the refugee crisis; and how we must fight against capitalism, racism, and all forms of oppression.

Non-teaching staff in higher education (HE) have been ‘offered’ a derisory 0% pay ‘rise’ this year. In the middle of a pandemic where union members are on the frontline in universities, workers are seeing just how much they are valued by management.

Lenin said that without revolutionary theory there could be no revolutionary movement. This is entirely correct. The ruling class tries to teach us in a way which benefits them, telling us that capitalism is the only system we can live under. However, this is untrue. Every 2 weeks we will be posting a theoretical article on a different topic, from economics, to philosophy to lessons learnt from centuries of fighting.


As Marxists, we understand that socialism is international, or it is nothing. This is why we’re proud to be a part the International Marxist Tendency, a revolutionary organisation present in over 40 countries – and growing! We are also supporters of Socialist Appeal, the Marxist Voice of Labour and Youth, which is the British section of the IMT. Check out these websites for more information.
