Camden against Bush!

By Kate Ferguson

As Bush was being shown the very best of British hospitality by Blair, students from across the capital took to the streets on 20 November in a demonstration against Bush and the invasion of Iraq.
Students from Camden School were amongst those protesting, with approximately 100 members of the sixth form having defiantly walked out of lessons at midday. This translates into one in four students not returning to their afternoon lessons. It created a buzz of debate within the school.

A Trotskyist in Israel writes

I am a 23 year old Israeli Trotskyist. It is good to read your reports and analyses, including the ones on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. I must say it is refreshing to find out that there is a revolutionary left in Britain that does not seek to "destroy" the state of Israel and establish a "secular and democratic state of Palestine". As a revolutionary socialist, this is certainly not my political aim.
