The Euston Manifesto (/ˈjuːstən/ YOO-stən) is a 2006 declaration of principles signed by a group of academics, journalists and activists based in the United Kingdom, named after the Euston Road in London where it had its meetings. The statement was a reaction to what the writers argued to be widespread violations of left-wing principles by others who were commonly associated with the Left. The manifesto states that "the reconfiguration of progressive opinion that we aim for involves drawing a line between forces on the Left that remain true to its authentic values, and currents that have lately shown themselves rather too flexible about these values".

  • The Euston Manifesto (/ˈjuːstən/ YOO-stən) is a 2006 declaration of principles signed by a group of academics, journalists and activists based in the United Kingdom, named after the Euston Road in London where it had its meetings. The statement was a reaction to what the writers argued to be widespread violations of left-wing principles by others who were commonly associated with the Left. The manifesto states that "the reconfiguration of progressive opinion that we aim for involves drawing a line between forces on the Left that remain true to its authentic values, and currents that have lately shown themselves rather too flexible about these values". These supposed violations mainly concerned Middle East issues, including the Iraq War, the Israeli–Palestinian conflict and the war on terror. Broadly speaking the group asserted that the Left was over-critical of the actions of Western governments, such as the military presence in Iraq, and correspondingly was overly supportive of forces opposing Western governments, such as the Iraqi insurgent forces. The document says "we must define ourselves against those for whom the entire progressive-democratic agenda has been subordinated to a blanket and simplistic 'anti-imperialism' and/or hostility to the current US administration." The manifesto proposed a "fresh political alignment", which involves "making common cause with genuine democrats, whether socialist or not", in which the Left stands for democracy, freedom, equality, internationalism, the open-source movement and historical truth, while condemning all forms of tyranny, terrorism, anti-Americanism, racism and antisemitism, including any form of it that "conceal[s] prejudice against the Jewish people behind the formula of 'anti-Zionism'". The signatories said they "reject fear of modernity, fear of freedom, irrationalism, the subordination of women", and reaffirm the ideas that inspired the great rallying calls of the democratic revolutions of the eighteenth century: liberty, equality and solidarity; human rights; the pursuit of happiness ... But we are not zealots. For we embrace also the values of free enquiry, open dialogue and creative doubt, of care in judgement and a sense of the intractabilities of the world. We stand against all claims to a total — unquestionable or unquestioning — truth. The Euston Manifesto was accused of supporting the 2003 invasion of Iraq, equating opposition to the state of Israel with antisemitism, and attempting to rally pro-imperialist sentiment among the Left.

  • Il Manifesto di Euston è una dichiarazione di principi del 2006 pubblicata da un gruppo di accademici e giornalisti della sinistra, basati nel Regno Unito. La dichiarazione è una reazione a ciò che affermano essere diffuse violazioni dei principi di sinistra da parte di altri che sono comunemente associati con la sinistra politica. Il Manifesto afferma che "il riallineamento dell'opinione progressista che costituisce il nostro obiettivo implica che si tracci una linea di demarcazione fra le forze della sinistra che rimangono fedeli ai propri valori autentici, e quelle correnti che di recente hanno mostrato un'eccessiva flessibilità riguardo a questi valori."
