Counterfire is a socialist organisation building the biggest possible movements against austerity, war and racism.

Counterfire believes that change happens when working people get organised and fight for it. Politics is not only or mainly about what happens in parliament.

Counterfire has one of the best-read websites on the left with cutting edge news, analysis and socialist theory and distributes thousands of copies of the left's first free paper.[1]
