There is a class war waging and we are losing it. The rich are getting richer and the gilded elite who have ruled us since Norman times remain in power and dominate land ownership just as they did when they first robbed it. We live in a feudal society dominated by an oligarchy of privately and Oxbridge educated toffs who run not just the government, banks, diplomacy but the media, music. comedy and even the opposition. We see no difference between any of the parties – we oppose Tristram Hunt with the same venom we hate Zac Goldsmith. . We don’t want to kick the tories out to replace them with Labour or any variety of failed Trots. We don’t want to kick them out at all – we want to kick them in!

Started in 1982 CLASS WAR was first a combative, funny, populist anarchist newspaper then mutated into a similar political organisation. We are proud of our past. But 30 years later the same approaches do not work. Endless photos of overseas riots and balaclaved anarchists bring no movement here. The same old same old is getting us nowhere. Time to think and do the unthinkable, to cross the Rubicon.

We are standing Class War candidates in the general election on May 7th 2015. We are doing this to launch a furious and co-ordinated political offensive against the ruling class with the opportunity an election gives us to talk politics to our class. We in no way see the election as an alternative to direct action. By the brick and the ballot.

We are not talking community politics here. It’s too late for a patient slowbuild like the IWCA. The ruling class have us by the throat -they need a short sharp kick in the bollocks. Our election campaign will use any means necessary. we won’t be ushered away by PR minders – we will make ourselves central to the campaign in a funny, rumbustious combative and imaginative way. We will be on the streets and in their faces.

Comrades whatever our yesterdays you are welcome now. join in. reject cynicism. have fun.

  2. How can we get involved?

    Any chance you can re-list all the places CW candidates are standing. Amazing response from my mates who wouldn’t describe themselves as anarchists or particularly political.

  5. rebel Campaign promise destroy workfare for million pound profit companies ?

  6. Nice, maybe you can add some policies into your plans that would get some of the disaffected public to take notice at least. E.g. Land Value Tax, legalisation of all drugs, installing stocks outside parliament to be used mandatorily every 5 years…

    • anon

      legalisation of drugs IS part of the same old same old, lib dems support it too don’t they? and it’s also guaranteed to turn off a large majority of working class people, the majority that don’t and have never mixed in druggy circles.

  7. Hunts the name

    I was going to vote. ..”Let’s get Labour really going with Owen!” (Jones) and/or “Lenins Tomb, no more Cliffite gloom, I’m BIG in the room ! ”

    BUT your anarchist ’andywork has convinced me.

    I have seen the future and its multiple postal voting!

    • Darren

      i live in norwich, i’d like to help. I only found out about class war’s election campaign from a bloke I work with, but I don’t really have a clue about the organisation or whatever. I’m just fucked off with the status quo and don’t want to put an X next to any of the current crop of cunts in 2015.
