It Takes One to Know One - 25th March 2003, 22.08

The International Committee of the Fourth International (World Socialists) feel aggrieved at the Stop The War coalition. They kindly list its members.

The meeting [People's Assembly] was held under the auspices of the STWC, an organisation made up of the British Muslim Association, the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and a number of left-wing parties of which the Socialist Workers Party (SWP) is the most prominent.

Why are they hopping mad?

Their agenda is to dragoon the antiwar movement behind a political perspective of support for the European imperialists and an attempt to revive the United Nations as a vehicle to try to restrain American militarism.

Now that the war has started, it does look like the anti-war coalition is slipping back into the hinterland of theoretical faction and left-wing lunacy from whence it came. One hopes that they will infect the Muslim Association of Britain with the same history of splits and arguments that they have enjoyed up to now. Where will Mohammed stand on the glories of Gosplan?
