Left Luggage

The socialist strategy site

About us

Left Luggage has been formed by a small, independent group of community organisers and trade union shop-stewards in the UK. This blog is an attempt to initiate a discussion within the British Left around strategic issues, including questioning some of our most fundamental organising principles. We believe addressing these issues is imperative if the Left is to become a significant political force in the near future.

We are not a political party or organisation. In the long run, our ambition is to develop working class self-organisation and to assist in reorienting the Left towards this goal. We also aim to stress the importance of fostering a culture of robust self-criticism and internal democracy. Obviously, these are huge tasks. At present, we are merely a small group attempting to initiate and engage in constructive debate around these issues. In doing so, we hope to build links and share ideas and experiences with others on the Left in a fraternal and non-sectarian manner.
