Socialist Appeal

Socialist Appeal is a tiny British Trotskyist organisation, founded by Ted Grant after he left the Militant Tendency (in the process of becoming the Socialist Party) he founded in exasperation at their abandonment of the tactic of entrism into the Labour Party. The group claims that unlike the Socialist Party, they focus on educating their members.

Although they remain small the tendency around Socialist Appeal has regrouped to some degree and its international co-thinkers grouped in the Committee for a Marxist International have grown. As well as publishing their magazine Socialist Appeal, the group has also published a number of books by Ted Grant and Alan Woods. The group has recently devoted much of their time to developing the website In Defence of Marxism.

Socialist Appeal was also the name of the newspaper of the Workers International League, and later that of the Revolutionary Communist Party, both British Trotskyist groups.
