Defy the injunction

01 Feb 2001

A clear majority voted for industrial action over the privatisation of London Underground. The ballot produced an overwhelming 85% 'yes' vote spanning both the Aslef and RMT unions. Now the courts have imposed an injunction. The strikes were to have taken place over three successive Mondays, starting on February 5. This follows last weekend's successful national day of action called by the Socialist Alliance to demand rail renationalisation.

CPGB and revolutionary defeatism

09 Nov 2000

Mark Fischer has developed an interesting analysis of revolutionary defeatism (Weekly Worker October 12).
