Revolutionary Socialist Network

About Us

The Revolutionary Socialist Network is a collective of independent local organizations and at-large activists working together to build a revolutionary socialist left current.

We aim to advance the interests of the working class by fighting exploitation and all its intersecting oppressions: racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia and all others. The capitalist system has failed. We need an international working-class movement, independent of all ruling-class parties, to fight for a sustainable, democratic, and socialist society that provides for all.

Our network was originally formed by former members of the now-defunct International Socialist Organization, but has since grown to include members from a variety of organizations across the United States. Membership in other organizations does not preclude anyone from joining us.

International Perspectives Resolution

By Socialist Resurgence

Today, across the world, the leading imperialist powers are clashing more and more frequently on every front, from trade negotiations to military interventions. This atmosphere of belligerence is a product of the growing mismatch between the global division of spoils and the power and capacities of the key players.
