The Alliance for Workers’ Liberty (AWL) is a Trotskyist group within the British Labour Party. The organization originates in the Workers’ Fight group, which was formed by Sean Matgamna and supporters in 1966 in a split from the Revolutionary Socialist League. It formed the Trotskyist Tendency within the International Socialists (IS) in 1968 but was an independent group again by 1971. By the mid-1970s the group worked increasingly within the Labour Party. In Labour, it formed the Socialist Organizer Alliance, with an eponymous paper, which initially had broader left support, but was identified solely with Matgamna and supporters by the early 1980s. The Labour Party proscribed Socialist Organizers in 1990. In 1992, supporters of the Socialist Organizer Alliance formed the Alliance for Workers’ Liberty.
