May 1968 in France shows the revolutionary left can't just build and lead once the upsurge happens. We need to have done the steady work beforehand of building a mass working class party of revolution with real roots in the working class.

We revolutionaries need to build for the future now. A good starting point is building a revolutionary socialist party and all that that entails. Not tomorrow; not when the class moves; now.  Such an organisation does not exist in Australia today.

As the revolutionary unity project Socialist Alternative initiated continues, isn't it time we had a look at what is on offer? We might just owe it to history and to the future.
