Socialist Voice


Socialist Voice: Marxist Perspectives for the 21st Century was an online journal published in Canada from 2004 to 2011. During that time 475 articles were posted on the website; many were also distributed by email to subscribers. In addition, Socialist Voice published 17 pamphlets in both hard copy and pdf form.

The founding Editors of Socialist Voice were Roger Annis and John Riddell. They were subsequently joined by Ian Angus. Over time, contributing editors from Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Nicaragua, and the United States joined the project, and an online discussion forum, SV-Circle, was created for discussion among editors and readers.

Most of Socialist Voice’s editors and contributors had been involved, directly or indirectly, with the current of the Fourth International led by the Socialist Workers Party (U.S.). Socialist Voice represented the only organized break from the SWP-led current after 1983.

The creation of Socialist Voice was sparked by the expulsion of John Riddell and Roger Annis from the Communist League, the SWP’s affiliate in Canada, on the grounds of their support for the movement against the U.S. war in Iraq. The first issue of SV contained statements by Riddell and Annis on this issue, along with replies by the SWP.

The dominant theme in Socialist Voice was international solidarity, expressed above all in support of Cuba and its allies in Venezuela, Bolivia, and elsewhere. It frequently published translations of statements by leading figures from those countries. SV was a partisan of Palestinian freedom, opposed U.S.-led attacks on Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan, and strongly supported popular movements in Haiti.

In Canada, Socialist Voice favored indigenous and Quebec sovereignty, regularly publishing documents and articles that were not widely available, and it was an early advocate of ecosocialism.

It often jointly published articles with other radical publications, including Green Left Weekly, Links, Seven Oaks, Rabble, and Socialist Project Bullet.

In March 2011, the editors announced that they were suspending publication, explaining that “our commitments to broader movements for justice and social change have made it difficult for the editors to devote the time that a publication of this scope requires.”

Some notes on this archive

The Socialist Voice Archive contains all of the articles and pamphlets published by Socialist Voice between 2004 and 2011. The articles were originally posted one at a time on the website; many were also distributed by email and in hard copy. For convenience, we have grouped them into PDF files, each containing the articles for a full month. The actual date each was originally posted is given.

For privacy reasons, email addresses, phone numbers and addresses have been removed. Hyperlinks have been removed, but many URLs remain, although most no longer work.

Comments posted on the SV website by readers are not included, except where the editors reposted them as separate articles.
