The Socialist Party is a member of the Committee for a Workers’ International which is a global organisation of workers, young people and all those oppressed by capitalism and imperialism which is fighting to building a socialist world. The era of neo-liberal capitalism and globalisation which has dominated the policies of the ruling classes has resulted in unprecedented inequality and exploitation. The richest 8 people on the planet now have the same wealth as the poorest 50% of the world population. The mass poverty, exploitation war and conflict which are the hall mark of capitalism today can only be ended through the a democratic planning of the economy by working people based on the nationalisation of the major multinational companies and financial companies and the introduction of a socialist planned economy. A system that will use new technology and human skill to benefit the mass of the population and not the profits of the richest 1%.
The CWI fights exploitation, racism, all exploitation and discrimination based on gender, sexual orientation or race, and national oppression. We fight for the unity of all working people in a global struggle against capitalism and imperialism. The CWI supports building mass parties of the working class to unite all working people in a struggle to defend their interests and oppose capitalism. We struggle to build Marxist parties with a revolutionary socialist programme to defeat capitalism in each country and internationally. The CWI is organised in over 40 countries in Europe, North and South America, Asia, Africa and Australasia in a common struggle for an international socialist alternative. On socialistworld.net you will find our programme, comment and witness the struggle of the CWI and working people throughout the world.
