Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism! 257 May/June 2017 Election Special
Don’t vote - Fight for socialism
In the run-up to the general election on 8 June, socialists will have to decide whether to support the Jeremy Corbyn-led Labour Party, or to oppose it because it remains a racist, imperialist and warmongering party. The Revolutionary Communist Group is clear: we are facing a global crisis of the capitalist system that threatens humanity with war and destruction. This means that there is only one choice: we have to build a working class movement that can challenge the ruthless, predatory British ruling class. We have to fight for socialism. Corbyn and his supporters are actively preventing this development. They and the trade unions have blocked the emergence of any resistance to austerity while spreading the illusion that, in the midst of a deepening economic crisis, a future Labour government can ‘deliver a fairer, more prosperous society for the many, not just the few’. The reality is that it cannot and it will not.
