The International Marxist Tendency, is active in around 40 countries. Our aim is to spread the ideas of Marxism, in an organised fashion, in the workers and youth movement. Only the working class has the ability to change British society, because of the central role they play in production and their shared interest in establishing socialism.
However, we must carefully study the history and traditions of the working class in order for Marxist ideas to connect with them. There are all too many groups who simply declare themselves the vanguard of the working class, and have a dismissive attitude to the class’ real traditions.
In this section readers will find a series of articles explaining our position on the class struggle, the key points in the history of the working class and the lessons to be learnt from them, and the strategy of the Marxists in relation to the movements of the masses. Many of the articles by Ted Grant deal with aspects of the class struggle in Britain as well as classics from Lenin and Trotsky. We believe that there are lessons for the Workers international and in Ireland.
