2022 Workers’ Voice-Socialist Resurgence Fusion Congress documents

We are working on finalizing edits to the Political Resolution approved at the 2022 fusion convention, and will be posting them shortly.

Workers’ Voice Constitution 2022

Documents from Workers’ Voice pre-fusion

These documents were written and adopted at congresses of Workers’ Voice prior to the 2022 fusion with Socialist Resurgence.

Our Marxist Approach to Combating Women’s Oppression in Working Class Organizations (2018)

Documents from Socialist Action and Socialist Resurgence

These documents were written by the Permanent Revolution Fraction (PRF) of Socialist Action, and presented at the 2018 Socialist Action convention. Most PRF members were undemocratically expelled from Socialist Action in October 2019; they and other ex-SA members then went on to found Socialist Resurgence. In 2022, Socialist Resurgence proceeded to merge with Workers’ Voice to form the current, unified Workers’ Voice.

The resolution on Russia was not adopted at the Convention because of disputes regarding its analysis of Russia’s actions in Syria and the connections of Russia with the far right. It did, however, cause Socialist Action to vote in favor of recognizing Russia as an imperialist state, and to vote to hold a discussion on publishing a revised work based upon this document. However, the discussion never took place, and the resolution remained unpublished.

China: a new imperial power

Russia: an imperialist state with regional clout

Historical documents related to the war in Ukraine

We are publishing this dossier of articles written by members of the Socialist Workers Party and the Fourth International as part of debates on the character of the Japanese invasion of China, and the evolution of these positions as the U.S. entered the war against Japan. Also included are documents from the Trotskyist press on the Italian colonial war against Ethiopia of 1935-36. We believe that this chapter of our political tradition offers directly relevant lessons to the current debates across the Left over the character of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and tasks for socialists in response to it.
