About Socialist Alternative in Russia

We are a political organisation fighting for the interests of the 99% - workers male and female, students, those working in healthcare, education and in public services, pensioners and the oppressed. We are building a party with a democratically elected, collective leadership with a programme for the socialist transformation of society. We want to see a mass movement, with a mass socialist workers party that will fight for those living from wage to wage, from student grant to student grant, from pension to pension, to fight for a world where all decisions that affect living standards, welfare, the climate are made with the involvement of, and in the interests of the majority by establishing a genuinely democratic and free, international socialist society.

To build such an organisation that is independent of business and the bureaucracy, we need our own finances. We exist exclusively due to the subscriptions of our members and the sacrifice of our supporters. What do we use this money for?

— Our full-time workers. They are politically developed members of the organisation freed from their former work. They are involved in the political development of the organisation, the search for new members and supporters, the analysis of current events, editorial work, the organisation of activities and meetings. They are party workers, controlled by the elected leadership of the organisation, and paid by the organisation;

— The organisation of activities. Protests, actions, party schools and meetings – all these cost money to print leaflets and placards, hire rooms, and to buy the necessary equipment;

— The publication of magazines, brochures, the filming of videos;

— Visits to other cities where there are groups of supporters wanting to set up local branches;

— Payment of fines for members who take part in activities.

Capitalism once developed the productive forces of society, but it not able to satisfy its needs. We want to say “no” to global climate change, war, xenophobia, LGBT-phobia, poverty and inequality. As long as the economy is managed by the 1% rich, the rest of us, those who create everything in this world by our labour will be exploited every day in the workplaces, turned away from politics, and confused by propaganda in the state media.

We need a radically different society.
We need a democratically planned economy under full workers control and management.
We need socialism.
