Socialist Democracy Group

sd1The Socialist Democracy Group was formed in late 1998 by Phil Hearse and a small number of comrades who left Militant Labour. Shortly afterwards they were joined by another small group who had recently left the International Socialist Group / Socialist Outlook.

In 2002, it merged into the Socialist Solidarity Network which was itself derived from a split from the Socialist Party / Militant.

Socialist Democracy was an early proponent of the idea of building broad class-struggle parties of the left and it was a strong supporter of the Scottish Socialist Party and the Socialist Alliance.

Nine issues of the journal Socialist Democracy were published, all of which can be found here.
