    Towards the RCP #7: Building the Party on campus

    Towards the RCP #7: Building the Party on campus

    With only two weeks to go until the founding congress of the Revolutionary Communist Party, and with students heading back to campuses for a final term of university, we sit down with Fiona Lali and Lubna Badi – members of the RCP's campaigns department – to discuss how RCP branches can recruit and organise around universities.

    In this episode, we cover how the capitalist crisis is affecting young people, the tactics and methods we can use to build the Party on campus, as well as how students can face outwards towards the wider class struggle.

    Scottish nationalism in crisis

    Scottish nationalism in crisis

    The powerful rise of the Scottish independence movement once struck fear into the British ruling class, threatening to break the United Kingdom and raise the rebellious spirit of the working class.

    Nearly ten years since the referendum that unleashed opposition to Tory Britain, and raised the Scottish National Party to unprecedented support, the movement is at a crossroads.

    The SNP leadership clique have proven themselves to be politically bankrupt, unable to retain their rosy reformist image as they carry out attacks on the working class, and completely lack any sincere strategy for the independence movement.

    In this session, Shaun Morris will discuss the crisis faced by Scottish nationalism, and why we can look toward the class struggle for a way forward for the fight for independence.

    In this episode, we cover why the working class needs an international, the successes we've had in the recent period, as well as how the international works.

    [Spectre of Communism] Why we need a Communist International

    [Spectre of Communism] Why we need a Communist International

    In June, the International Marxist Tendency will take the monumental step of founding a new Revolutionary Communist International (RCI), to provide communist workers and youth around the world with a bold rallying point in the struggle to overthrow capitalism.

    In doing so, the RCI will build on the immense revolutionary legacy left behind by the Third (Communist) International, founded by Lenin and the Bolsheviks as the world party of revolution.

    🔗 Register now for the founding of the RCI: https://schoolofcommunism.com/

    This week’s episode of Spectre of Communism podcast welcomes Fred Weston, a leading comrade of the International Marxist Tendency, to explain the historic revolutionary importance of the Communist International.

    In doing so, Fred demonstrates the palpable need for a similar organisation in the world today.

    The limitations of direct action

    The limitations of direct action

    The capitalist system is in a deep global crisis. Its decline has devastating consequences, not only in terms of social and economic conditions, but also the destruction of the planet.

    This is shaking millions of people to political life and it has driven an increase in political activity of all kinds. In particular, some are drawn towards the methods of ‘direct action’ and ‘civil disobedience’.

    In this talk, Joe Russell will examine the limits of ‘direct action’ groups like Just Stop Oil, XR and, even to some extent, the self-proclaimed communist organisations.

    By revisiting some of Lenin’s writings from the early 1900s, and by examining political developments today, Joe will present a Marxist approach to these struggles, which correspond to the period of revolution that is opening up before us.

    Towards the RCP #5: Why we need Marxist theory

    Towards the RCP #5: Why we need Marxist theory

    As Lenin famously declared, "without revolutionary theory, there can be no revolutionary movement." Defending the ideas of genuine Marxism is the bedrock of what we do here at the Revolutionary Communist Party.

    With just a month to go until the founding congress of the RCP, Fiona Lali and Jack Tye Wilson discuss why Marxist theory is essential to building the Party, as well as how communists can go about educating themselves.

Hot to Trotsky

These podcasts are informative and a great listen for when you’re at work. What could be better, while making the fat capitalist bosses rich, than injecting your audio waves with a healthy dose of revolutionary theory?

MMT Straw Man :((

Listened to the Marxism, Keynesianism and MMT episode - spent a lot of time saying “I’m not going to construct a straw man of MMT” before proceeding to construct a straw man of MMT. Disappointing, but not surprising unfortunately.
