From Pedal4Progress:

"The bicycle is a human-powered machine which challenges, empowers and brings endless joy to countless millions. When I am riding my bike I am 12 years old once again, free as a bird, with the wind in my hair, ready for whatever adventure life may throw my way. By contrast, capitalism is a money-powered machine which oppresses humans in the interests of something our masters call “the economy”. The Morning Star is the voice of the human being demanding that the economy serves the people so that we can all be free. If that’s not worthy of our support, what is?" [3]

Straight Left

Calvin Tucker and Noah Tucker operate the website along with Uri Cohen. Calvin Tucker and Cohen are ex-members of the Communist Party of Great Britain and split to form a group associated with the magazine Straight Left. They wanted the CP to be more “pro-Soviet”, a policy that seems consistent with their current beliefs.[6]
