Inqaba ya basebenzi

Inqaba ya basebenzi, published in London by the Marxist Workers' Tendency of the African National Congress documents the workers' struggle for national liberation, democracy and socialism.

Issues discussed include wage negotiations, improved working conditions, campaigns for a national minimum wage and exploitation of workers. Trade union action in the struggle for power by united workers is documented at length. Strikes by mineworkers, factory workers and transport workers are discussed in the context of increasing resistance to the repressive National Government apartheid policies. Capitalism, socialism, imperialism and reformism are issues debated at length, placed in the local South African context and in the wider international arena.

Supplements to several of the issues contain theoretical and sometimes historical discourses on socialism, revolution, Marxism and Stalinism.
