LV Magazine November

Two days before the U.S. elections, we are proud to present the Left Voice Magazine. Over the last five years, we have published five issues of a printed magazine. Today we are introducing a digital format. On the first Sunday of every month, we will publish a new issue with a handful of in-depth articles.

As the capitalist crisis intensifies, we want to offer profound reflections about the problems of socialism. As Lenin said, “Without revolutionary theory there can be no revolutionary movement.”

We are publishing this first digital issue in a moment of multiple crises: the mass uprisings against police brutality are not over, but the Democratic Party is channeling the movement into the supposedly “democratic” institutions of U.S. capitalism. We are arguing for the political independence of the working class, and examining different strategies in the fight for socialism, with a particular emphasis on the legacy of Leon Trotsky.

This new online magazine is a similar format to the magazines published by our sister sites, including Ideas de Izquierda (Argentina), Ideias de Esquerda (Brazil), Ideas Socialistas (Chile), Ideas de Izquierda MX (Mexico), Ideas de Izquierda VE (Venezuela), RP Dimanche (France).

We are making the contents of this magazine freely available all at once. Yet we still need support to build up a revolutionary socialist publication. If you enjoy this magazine, please consider donating $5, $10, or whatever you can. You can make a contribution via Paypal or Patreon.

Understanding the Global Context of the Ukrainian Conflict: A Response to Our Critics

The 2022 invasion of Ukraine and the massive rearmament of Europe that followed mark a new stage in a growing conflict that has become a proxy war between the imperialist states of the US and NATO on one side, and an emerging alliance between Russia and China on the other. While some on the Left see this new pole of Russia and China as a check against US imperialism, neither country is anti-imperialist, and neither has anything progressive to offer working people.

Pro-NATO Positions Split a Trotskyist Tendency

The war in Ukraine has led to intense debates on the international socialist Left. In November, the Socialist Labor Party (SEP) of Turkey announced it was breaking with the Socialist Workers Movement (MST) of Argentina, in a serious blow to their common project, the International Socialist League (ISL-LIS). What can we learn from this split?

Dossier: One Year of a Reactionary War in Ukraine

With the aim of developing an international perspective for working class intervention against the reactionary war in Ukraine, we publish this dossier. These articles engage with some of the key debates the war has opened on the Left, analysis on how the geopolitical crisis is developing, and the positions of our international tendency: the Trotskyist Fraction - Fourth International.
