Trade unionism in crisis - a programme for action
573kb pdf file - approx dowload time = 2 minutes

The working class and trade unions are facing an historic challenge. Corporate-driven globalisation has changed for ever the relationships between workers and employers, in both public and private sectors. Old-style compromises are out and confrontation is in as jobs are moved from Britain to lower labour cost countries and public services become commercialised. Yet the present leadership of the trade unions - including the so-called "awkward squad" - is clearly incapable of taking up these new challenges.

This pamphlet was written by trade unionists who are members of the Movement for a Socialist Future. It is aimed at stimulating the discussion already taking place in the unions about the future direction of the labour movement.

The Right to Self-Determination

Includes new material on the history of the Soviet Union and the north Caucasus. From Kurdistan to Palestine, Chechnya, East Timor and Tibet, oppressed peoples are struggling for their independence. This pamphlet sets out a concrete, partisan and principled attitude to the right to self-determination. Lenin's analysis of the economic foundation of national movements is outlined, and studied in relation to his logical method. The theoretical origins of the disastrous "two-stage" theory are shown. A special section about Chechnya and the North Caucasus draws on recent research by the Minority Rights Group and historical sources recently made available in the former Soviet Union.

MSF manifesto says: Don't waste your vote on New Labour
800kb pdf file - approx download time = 3 minutes

The Movement for a Socialist Future's 2001 election manifesto, Shape the Future, says that the parliamentary system has failed and that "an extension of democratic procedures throughout every area of society" is the only alternative. The Manifesto argues that the right to vote is devalued by the existing parliamentary system of government. Political institutions today exist essentially to lend legitimacy to the global corporations which control our lives, the Manifesto says. During the election campaign, the MSF called for:

  • AGAINST a vote for New Labour
  • FOR new, democratic political institutions
