Who we are

The Socialist Workers Party (SWP) is a revolutionary socialist organisation. We stand against all forms of exploitation, bigotry and oppression. We think the problems in society stem from capitalism – a system that prioritises profit above all else. We believe a socialist world where people come before profit is possible, and necessary. Theory is important to us. See our ideas and theory page to find out more.

In the SWP we aim to build a party of leaders. We are activists involved in anti-racist campaigns, the fight against austerity, the movement demanding action on climate change and more. Across the country we have branches who hold regular political meetings and are involved in local campaigns.
