New Left Blogs

It's come round quick to that time of the month when we look at the newest (and newish) socialist, left and labour movement blogs to have burst into being. I make it 22 blogs all told. Understandably with the high profile student occupations blogs in some way related to anti-cuts protesting are starting to come through in large numbers. So, without further ado:

1.
A Burdz Eye View (Unaligned) (Twitter)
2.
A New Left Rising (Socialist Party)
3.
Anarchist Media Project (Unaligned/Anarchist)
4.
Are Women Human? (USA - Unaligned) (Twitter)
5.
Ayes to the Left (Labour)
6.
Black and White Rainbow (Unaligned) (Twitter)
7.
Comfort and Affliction (Unaligned) (Twitter)
8.
Ephemeral Left (Socialist Party Ireland)
9.
False Economy (Unaligned/Anti-Cuts) (Twitter)
10.
Get Heard Project (Unaligned/Student Occupations) (Twitter)
11.
Great Lake Swimmer (Canada - Unaligned)
12.
Kemptown Ben (Greens) (Twitter)
13.
Lewisham Anti Cuts Alliance (Unaligned/Anti-Cuts) (Twitter)
14.

15.

16.

17.
The Meditations of Miss Ellie Mae (Unaligned) (Twitter)
18.
The Web Presence of Anna Johnstone (Unaligned) (Twitter)
19.

20.
TransgenderZone Blog (Unaligned/Trans activism) (Twitter)
21.
Tristram Hunt's Blog (Labour) (Twitter)
22.
UCL Occupation (Unaligned/Student Occupations) (Twitter)

It would be amiss of me not to mention
Socialist Unity's arrival on Twitter. Apart from that, that's your lot for November/December. If you know of any new blogs (a year or less old) that haven't been featured before, drop me a line via email, the comments or on Twitter. The new blog round up is posted on the first Sunday of every month.

Thanks for featuring Are Women Human! I'm in the US, if that's relevant, and I'm on Twitter.
