What parties/organizations does leftypol belong to? It seems we have a lot of Leninists (and a few Bordigists) here so I assume you guys are in parties, right?

Pic unrelated, hopefully :^)

I'm a member of my uni's socialist student organization, but I'm not part of any outside groups.

I really want to join Socialist Alternative, are you a member?

No. They seem way too liberal for me from what I've seen on their website (putting B████ and then Jill Stein over everything else) but I assume some regional branches are more hardliners than others.

I think there are a couple of members on leftypol, hopefully they'll show up so you can get their side of the story.

Green party organizer in my state. I considered a lot of other socialist organizations several months back but most had really off-putting idpol shit in them. When the Greens passed that anti-capitalism plank it sealed the deal for me.

The green party rubs me the wrong way. They don't seem to have a coherent strategy other than throwing a random candidate at the White House every four years, and their reliance on memes this election is very reminiscent of their running Roseanne Barr. The fact that Stein equivocates her denouncement of capitalism with "corporate capitalism" is worrying.

I've been involved with the DSA this year after I saw how effective they are at organizing. Theyre the most grounded and realistic group I've seen on the west coast, which surprised me after dealing with some frankly embarrassingly misguided folks with the RCP and ANSWER Coalition.

I read on @larrywebsite's CuriousCat.me that he had some bad experiences with the Socialist Alternative, but ffs they got Sawant in office. They can't be that bad.

Also please understand the bullshit stacked against all third parties in the United States when it comes to ballot access and exactly why running a presidential candidate is essential.

This is one of the groups I was talking about drowning in idpol. At least when I checked the most local chapter looking for a meeting to attend.

Socialist Equality Party. They have a conference coming up in November in Detroit, it's gonna be the beginning of their big anti-war movement, gonna see if I can make it. Also looking forward to voting for Jerry White in November.

SPUSA bb. Only US party with a decent platform that isn't

a) liberals that like welfare more than the democrats or

b) weirdo trots that have literally zero potential to give rise to a popular movement

Still flawed obviously but beggars can't be choosers.

Repping Socialist Alternative Canada

Endorsing SocDems etc… doesn't immediately make you a Liberal. If you think Kshama Sawant is a liberal, then you seriously need to learn what Liberalism is.
I know it's fun to use Liberal as a leftist slur, but Liberalism is a well defined ideology, which is nothing like our party line

Definitely get in contact with them, the Vancouver section is awesome

Socialist Alliance (Australia). We have lots of old Trots and I am a LibSoc/AnSoc but they are open to robust debate and good at orthopraxic approach. Also good proletarian character (not middleclass) in many branches.

I actually don't know if there are any active Socialist groups in my state (Indiana). I'd be interested in getting involved in an organization, but I wouldn't know where to look for them. They don't seem to very active around my neck of the woods.

Anybody here know about Socialist organizations that have branches in, or around, central Indiana?

Brandon Ortiz

The problem isn't that they endorsed social democrats (which could be a useful tactic for getting disaffected liberals to go red), the problem is it seems to be all they talk about based on their website. Again, maybe local branches are different, idk.

Same here (I wouldn't say I'm proud, don't put the Party on a pedestal, the Party is merely a vehicle to serve the people) and I'm a Co-op Party member too, they are the better party and would leave Labour if we got proportional representation.

I'm thinking about joining the IWW (UK branch obviously) as well if it would help suppressed workers in other countries, does anybody have any idea how they use dues to help foreign workers too? I'm going to call them asking whether they do.

Gabriel Collins

I'm going to call them asking whether they do.

Back, they don't actually have any phone numbers save for some of the regional branches that might have a mobile number up and there aren't many regional branches.

I'll keep digging and get back to you guys if I find something substantial.

I'm not sure, but we have a solid Chicago branch. I would go to Chicago and inquire with them at a branch meeting.

Ive worked with people who went into socialist alternative and then immediate left for a few different reasons but a few are always the same.

1, they try to steal all media attention when anyone is doing anything IE puting their banners in front of everyone and such

2, they're just liberals and dont really do anything of importance

Thats all i hear about them, i haven't seen them do anything in particular except come to demos and the like.

Join the IWW. We don't endorse any political candidates, we organize workplaces, create workers co-ops, we are currently one of the main groups involved in the largest prison strike in the US in over 50 years and were once one of the most powerfull workers ortganzations in the united states before the red scares (fuck palmer). Dues are dependent on employment, if your unemployed or a student or retired its only 6$ a month, if you are employed it all depends on your wage. We arn't just anarchists, we have a mix of alot of the left that has libertarian tendencies. Come Join the One big Union, after the first meeting we can get drunk and talk shit about cops.

Regional branches may vary, but "SJW" types arnt around (except possibly in the American west and London).

I've recently joined our socdem party and aside from some "muh womyn" idpol(I can understand that given the political landscape of our country) I am pleasantly surprised, as there are some hidden entryists here and there. I briefly overheard that during the anonymous opinion poll that was held during our meeting somebody wrote he's a marxist, so I assume there might be more of such people hidden in the party structures.
I've got a strange feeling that even the party top is composed of socialists masquerading as socdems, considering many of them were part of the actual socialist youth ages ago.

Amerikkkan here. Theory wise, SEP and Spartacist League are the best. SWP would be pretty good without their Cuba fellating and the fact that they're pretty much a dead party.

SPUSA and Green Party are dank if you don't mind the reformism.

Socialist Alliance are based as fuck, everything on their platform is literally perfect.

How active are the IWW in the southern US?
The south is where we have the least members in the United states, but we still exist in every state except South Carolina, Mississippi and West Virginia. Their alot of reasons for this, most being that the southern US just isn't very receptive to anything socialist or anarchist. You can always start a branch if you want iww.org/guides/branch

Ya, the IWW is not a political party and has never endorsed the DPRK
