Welcome to the Leicester SU page for the Marxist Society.


We are a part of the International Marxist Tendency, a globe-spanning organisation dedicated to the overthrow of global capitalism through socialist revolution led by the masses.

Reformists look to patch up capitalism. They want a nicer, kinder capitalism. But this is impossible. Capitalism is crumbling, experiencing the deepest of all crises. It cannot be reformed.

Marxists, in contrast, believe that the problems of the working class can only be resolved by the overthrow of capitalism. We therefore stand for the socialist transformation of society – in Britain and internationally. 

You will find us at demonstrations, picket lines, trade unions, and out on the streets spreading the ideas of Marxism and finding communists across the city.

We place a strong emphasis on revolutionary theory, ensuring our political understanding is strong enough to fully understand modern and historical events, economics and philosophy. As such, we also hold regular political discussions and reading groups on important Marxist texts. 

Are you a communist? Then get organised! Join the IMT!
