Social Equality Party (Germany)

The Social Equality Party ( _de. Partei für Soziale Gleichheit, Sektion der Vierten Internationale, PSG) is a trotskyst minor political party in Germany. It was founded in 1997 as successor to the "Bund Sozialistischer Arbeiter (eng: Federation of Socialist Workers)".

The party sees itself as the German section of the Fourth International in the tradition of Leon TrotskyPSG: [http://www.gleichheit.de/wahlsite/index.php?topnav=party&subnav=faqs&lang=de&id=3 "Fragen an die Partei für Soziale Gleichheit"] ] The international umbrella group of the party is the International Committee of the Fourth International (ICFI).World Socialist Web Site: [http://www.wsws.org/de/ikvi-de.shtml "Wer ist das IKVI?"] ] and has contacts to other member parties of the fourth international in England, the US, Sri Lanka, Canada and Australia.

It is critical of trade unions, social democrats and former stalinist organisations.PSG: [http://www.gleichheit.de/wahlsite/index.php?topnav=statements&lang=de "Wahlerklärungen 2005-2008"] ] . Since they are based on the Nation state these organisations have,according to the SEP, lost every opportunity to act for the working class during the times of globalisation and the crisis of capitalism. Since they don't question the capitalist system itself they are moving further to the right in times of crises. The party on the contrary wants to build an international, socialist workers' movement.
