What we stand for

Our demands

For the United Socialist States of Europe

Workers in Britain must reject all forms of racism and nationalism and link their struggles with workers in Europe and throughout the world. Against the European Union and its pro-business governments, we stand for workers’ rule across the continent.

End militarism and war

No more blood spilled for oil and resources. Withdraw all British military personnel from overseas. Put the war criminals in Westminster and Washington on trial.

Defend democratic rights

The defence of democratic rights requires shutting down the state’s mass spying apparatus and its multiple agencies—MI5, MI6 and the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). All anti-terror legislation and other measures that have curtailed individual liberties must be rescinded. Withdraw all anti-trade union and anti-strike legislation.

Redistribute the nation’s wealth

Cancel all debts to the international finance institutions, and transform the banks and major corporations into publicly owned and democratically controlled utilities. Wealth must be taken off the billionaires and used to meet essential social needs.

An emergency public works programme

Reverse all austerity measures and spending cuts. Pour billions into the economy to end unemployment and provide decent paying jobs, free and high quality health, housing, education and social services.
