The Movement for Socialism is an occasional grouping of socialists in the United Kingdom. It originated as one half of the major split in the Workers Revolutionary Party of 1985. Initially, both halves continued under the WRP name and both published a newspaper named News Line, but Cliff Slaughter's group later renamed the publication Workers Press.

Workers' Revolutionary Party (Workers Press)[edit]

The group was initially led by Cliff Slaughter and Michael Banda,[1] but Banda left in 1986 to form the Communist Forum.[2] Another early split was the International Communist Party, which later became the Socialist Equality Party (SEP) which was led by David Hyland in Britain.[3] Hyland died in 2013 [4]
