Someone forwarded this to me on the Facebook. New adventures in British platformism.

Isn't this sorta the warmed over Liberty & Solidarity thing?

Yeah, they mention Collective Action as an antecedent, L&S not so much. This said, I have no real idea about who either of those two groups are, other than they were "Wooo The Platform"-type splits from the Anarchist Federation.

Their links page includes:

Jacobin - A leading voice of the American left
Novara Media - Independent media organisation
Red Pepper - Webmag of left politics and culture

Libertarian Socialist Federation — a new Leftist group in the anarchist playground?

Yes, I seemed to have got into a muddle. I followed the link in the button's post:

Then LSF link for Webzine:

http://cawebzine.net/

Then Links on Collective Action's page. I thought that was the links page for LSF.

Given those pages are very similar, interesting to see the changes.

There is indeed much more critical discussion on libcom of the various 'Collective Action' groups earlier stuff that is still relevant to this newish group.
