The League for Socialist Action was a small Trotskyist organisation in the United Kingdom.

It consisted of a group of members of the reunified Fourth International who split from the International Marxist Group in the 1976 in support of the American Socialist Workers Party's tendency in the International.

Its publication, Socialist Action, was produced several times each year. Its pamphlets included Abortion a Woman's Right! (1975) ; The Labour Party (1976) ; and Revolution in the Americas (1981).[1]

It engaged in entrism in the Labour Party in the period after 1976, and merged again with the International Marxist Group in 1982.
