As crises mount, the government is increasingly leaning on the army in order to fill labour shortages and keep society running – from driving lorries to providing jabs. This is yet another reflection of the decrepit state of British capitalism.

The past 12 months have been explosive in Britain, as the crisis of capitalism deepens, and the Tory government is pummelled by a torrent of sleaze and scandals. We urgently need to build the forces of Marxism. Help us in this task. Donate today!

Private water companies are routinely dumping raw sewage into Britain’s waterways and coasts. But the Tories claim that fixing this would bankrupt these firms. Clearly the whole system is bankrupt. It’s time to re-nationalise the lot.

We are sad to announce the recent passing away of comrade Kenny Brown – a militant class fighter, and a loyal, dedicated supporter of Socialist Appeal. Rob Sewell pays tribute to Kenny, who will be greatly missed by all those who knew him.

Alongside this week’s action by UCU members in universities throughout the country, higher education workers at Goldsmiths in London are in the middle of a three-week strike against job cuts. We offer them our full solidarity in this struggle.

With academic staff in the UCU due to strike for three days this week, activists from the Marxist Student Federation are helping to organise solidarity campaigns in universities across the country. Students and workers: unite and fight!
