The Labour movement has started to put itself once more at the heart of British politics in the wake of the economic crisis, with two huge demonstrations and a massive strike in the last 18 months. But it also needs to link up with social protest in a new way in order to effect change, uniting its traditional strengths with the energy and vision of groups like UK Uncut and Occupy. Unite is seeking to engage with working-class communities and social movements in a new way in order to develop a working-class politics for the 21st century.
