Our Politics

We think society would be better if we made the decisions that affect us ourselves, instead of being controlled by bosses and bankers.

We see representative 'democracy' as a scam; we don't see how voting for someone once every 5 years amounts to democracy - especially since politicians, whatever their ideals, always end up serving business interests once they gain any real power. We think this is inevitable; that whenever a handful of people wield power they end up abusing it.

Instead of using parliament, we encourage people to take direct action together, seeing this as the most practical way to create a society ruled not by profit but organised to meet human needs. We aim to show positive alternatives and debate the root causes of the problems we face.
