We are socialists and Marxists
The economic, environmental and Covid-19 crises have made clear that capitalism is a conflict
between two classes: the vast majority who create the wealth, and a tiny minority who profit from it.Attempts to reform capitalism have failed: the only solution is to replace it with a truly democratic socialist society. Capitalist rulers will only give up power if forced to do so. We need a mass democratic movement to bring about socialism. Events, such as the Russian Revolution of 1917,January 2012 in Nigeria and the uprisings in Sudan and Algeria last year, show what is needed.
