Back in the USSR focuses on the recent UK elections. On December 12, The British Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn, a long-time progressive and anti-imperialist, with a history of solidarity with the Palestinian people in particular, faced off against incumbent Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservatives, who have presided over one of the most brutal austerity regimes in the world – cutting back on every kind of social spending and consigning millions upon millions of people to poverty and homelessness while giving every subsidy and tax break one can think of to the one percent. Unfortunately that hyper-capitalist regime of austerity was given a major boost last Thursday, with the Conservatives winning an absolute majority in the UK parliament. A moment of truth and a moment of shame that will have deadly consequences for many suffering people. Back in the USSR also pays tribute to the late Noel Ignatiev, anti-racist academic and organizer, and author of the book "How the Irish Became White".
