Interview with an NHS doctor: Tories are "paving the way for privatisation"

Capitalism is pushing us into a crisis of healthcare in Britain. Austerity in the NHS is having serious implications for the quality of patient care and the working conditions of those who look after us when we are sick. We publish here an interview with a junior doctor working in a central London hospital, which gives an insight into the situation facing the NHS today.

Corbyn, the arts, and revolution

We publish here a letter from a comrade in West Yorkshire, who highlights Jeremy Corbyn's programme for culture and the arts. Rather than simply protecting funding for the arts, socialists should be arguing for a revolution in how art is created, displayed, and distributed - and, in turn, for a revolution in how society is run and organised.

Review: "Economics After Capitalism" by Derek Wall

In his book Economics After Capitalism, Derek Wall, International Coordinator of the Green Party, looks at various anti-capitalist movements and theories, and argues that capitalism may be dominant, but it is far from inevitable. A genuine alternative to capitalism is needed and must be fought for.

IMT World School 2015: a testament to the strength of revolutionary internationalism

Last week saw the 2015 World School of the International Marxist Tendency, with around 270 visitors attending the Italian-hosted event from over 30 different countries, coming from as far and wide as Canada, Venezuela, South Africa, Morocco, and Pakistan. The school was testament to the enthusiasm and strength of ideas within the IMT.

Letters on Corbyn: "a big step forward for our class"

We publish here two recent letters that we have received from Socialist Appeal supporters in Coventry, which outline and explain the enthusiasm amongst workers and youth for Jeremy Corbyn's Labour leadership campaign. As one comrade writes, Jeremy's campaign and potential victory represents a "big step forward for our class".
