Description: This is the international tendency rooted in the British Socialist Workers Party tradition. The most significant difference between this extremely large tendency in the world movement and that of orthodox Trotskyist groups is its characterization of the USSR, China, etc. as state capitalist. It characterizes its tradition as “Socialism from below.” The IST has sections in 27 countries.
