John Riddell: Democracy in Lenin's Comintern

How did Communist parties handle issues of internal discipline and democracy in Lenin’s time? The recent intense discussion within the British Socialist Workers’ Party (SWP) and beyond has heard claims that the SWP rests on the traditions of democratic centralism inherited from the Bolsheviks.

Oppose the South East Alliance in Cricklewood

London Anti Fascists are organising to oppose the fascist South East Alliance march in Cricklewood on 14 June. The South East Alliance are a rag tag bunch of racists and fascists who contain ex-BNP and EDL members, and have a history of violent and racist behaviour.

They are coming to protest against the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt who have their offices in Cricklewood.

While we in the IS Network are not supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood per se, they are not the ones intending to march down our streets shouting racist abuse at anyone they see as different, be they black, Asian, Muslim or Irish.

We oppose both the racism of these neo-fascist groups trying to divide our community and the institutional racism of the state and police in north west London.

Join us on the streets to show Cricklewood unites against racist bigots.

11AM SAT 14 JUNE / 113 CRICKLEWOOD BROADWAY, NW2
