Left Unity on suspension of UK Parliament

Published on: 29.08.2019

Boris Johnson’s suspension of parliament is the latest stage of a right-wing Tory coup that has been unfolding since the Brexit referendum in 2016. The suspension of parliament will presage a calamitous hard Brexit – very likely followed by a general election. Their plan is to turn Britain into a deregulated, cheap labour, low-tax, outpost with minimal workplace and environmental regulations.

Published on: 19.08.2019

The G7 is an illegitimate framework that brings together the war- and austerity-mongers, those responsible for the worsening of poverty and the lack of will to fight effectively against global warming, those who create the conditions for the next crisis of capitalism, the promoters of free trade agreements and those responsible for closing borders against migrants.
The climate, social and economic crisis and the risks of war cannot be solved by those who are responsible for them. The time has come for a real international initiative driven by peoples and nations and devoted to the urgencies of the planet.
