General Election manifesto

No to Gaza genocide and NATO war against Russia! Fight for a socialist alternative to Starmer’s Labour Party! Build a socialist anti-war movement!

The Socialist Equality Party (SEP) is standing candidates in the British general election to build a socialist anti-war movement, based on the working class.

Millions of workers and young people in the UK hate the Conservatives and Labour for their backing and arming of the Israeli state as it commits genocide, killing more than 38,000 Palestinians in Gaza, and they want an alternative.

UK Labour’s King’s Speech promises nothing for workers

There is no reason to believe that even the paltry agenda set out by Starmer’s Labour Party will be met, given the crisis-ridden world situation and the government’s total commitment to British imperialism and its escalating, ever more expensive, wars.
