There was a point made tonight that’s worth repeating. ‘Strikes are part of the compromise between the working & ruling class. Now they’re trying trying to pull even that compromise form us.’ Make sure you’re on a picket line tomorrow. #DefendTheRightToStrike
🔥Tonight’s public meeting made one thing absolutely clear: Students are right behind the @ucu & our campus trade unions in their struggle. See you on the picket line! #ucuRISING ⏰Tomorrow, 0900 📍Main gate, Uni avenue

Just finished this wartime history of the ILP. It’s worth reading. Highlights how vague opposition to the war, disaffiliation from the Labour Party and a radical but unclear alternative, left the ILP with nowhere to go.

“We proved another Bolivia was possible.” — Evo Morales We’ve written this thread on the achievements of Bolivias’s MAS government & their transition to a socialist mode of production, 17 years after Morales’ inauguration.
Evo Morales Ayma — leader of the Movement Towards Socialism–Political Instrument for the Sovereignty of the Peoples (MAS-IPSP), trade union leader, and son of llama herders — was inaugurated as Bolivia’s first Indigenous president in January 2006.

The SNP’s strategy on the national question has resorted to Whac-A-Mole. Arising questions are answered with an ever-changing, increasingly odd conception of the terms on which Scotland would leave the UK. Evidence of a political class struggling for ideas after 15 years.
A Yes vote for Scottish independence would also count as a vote to rejoin the European Union, the Constitution Secretary has said thenational.scot/news/232842…

Constant campaigns to ban things and create new criminal offences are a cheap way for politicians to look busy, but they are a symptom of a political class in Scotland which has precious little ambition other than to justify its own existence.
The overwhelming majority of people across Scotland have had enough of disposable vapes littering their high streets and polluting their communities. That's why @GillianMacMSP is calling for action.♻️🚮 dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scott…

Earlier today I spoke with @SkyNews about US Secretary of State Blinken coming to Palestine & explained how this will be a textbook visit where he will reiterate US support for the Israeli regime & the continuation of impunity for its crimes against the Palestinian people.

Can’t understand why Scottish Labour are “yet to settle on an approach”. Especially when the leader is down to speak at the “Protect the Right to Strike” rally that evening. Every MSP should be completely respecting these picket lines. scotsman.com/news/politics/m…
