Marxist and anarchist organisations in London

What Marxist and anarchist organisations are in London? Asking for a friend:

"tldr does anyone know of solid left orgs in london that my friend could check out?

i've got a pal in london who's feeling pretty shitty about capitalism etc etc, afaik they haven't organised before but they are interested in getting involved with a group over there. if anyone knows of a cool group with a broadly anti-capitalist kaupapa [Māori word for principles - me] that would welcome a bby radical please lmk!"

Depending on their location and particular interests, I would recommend them checking out one of these: Anarchist Federation, Solidarity Federation, Angry Workers of the World, Industrial Workers of the World or Anarchist Communist Group, which are all active in London.

I'd also say it might be worth having a look at Plan C - might be their thing, might not. Oh, and the Rebel City paper is probably a good way to get a sense of what's going on - I think this is the current one? http://www.anarchistcommunism.org/2018/04/13/rebel-city/

First Saturday afternoon of every month, you can have a tour of the head office of the Socialist Party of Great Britain in Clapham High Street.

The radical history walks could be a good place to start, get to meet some people without going along to a meeting, they were put on by the Radical History Network and I heard that they were great.

Their events are listed here

There is also a guy (David Rosenberg) who has written a book and organises similar walks, no idea who he is, maybe someone else knows him.
