What we stand for

Sheffield left is a socialist group that seeks the radical transformation of society.  We are anti-capitalists who recognise the primacy of the class struggle to bring about the change necessary for humans to live a free and fulfilling life.

We are in favour of an equal society based on need and not on profit, and therefore oppose the present oppressive aspects inherent in capitalism of racism, sexism and all other forms of discrimination and oppression.

We believe in collective ownership and democratic control of the means of production, and of all essential services e.g. health, utilities, transport.

We support radical transformative policies to combat the climate emergency and create a fairer, greener, socialist society.

We are anti-imperialists supporting the struggles of progressive organisations opposing imperialism and settler-colonialism.

We are internationalists and support our sisters and brothers across the planet who are fighting for a better, socialist, world.

We recognise the importance of an organised working class and support workers joining and transforming their trade unions into democratic organisations of the working class.

We believe in the importance of open public debate of socialist ideas. 

We support the idea of a mass democratic socialist party, which allows the formation of temporary or permanent internal tendencies and factions, and we will work towards achieving that.

New members are welcome who share such a vision. Please contact the convenor, Lee Rock:
