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.

Black History Month: Fight For Liberation!
Tell the truth!

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. 


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.
