Socialist View

Socialist View is the theoretical journal of the Socialist Party. Under its former name of "Socialism 2000" we produced 6 issues of the journal. As we get time some of the principal articles will be added to the site.

Socialist View, No. 10, Spring 2003, went to press on Tuesday 11th February, a few days BEFORE the Day of Global protest against the Imperialist War on Iraq.
We are asking all readers to take out a subscription, contact either the Belfast or Dublin offices.
