Shropshire: showing socialist alternative gets results

Thirty people gathered in Shrewsbury on Thursday 9 September for a Socialist Party (SP) public meeting entitled 'what is the socialist alternative?' with the party's deputy general secretary, Hannah Sell, as the guest speaker.

Hannah discussed topics ranging from the imperialist war in Afghanistan; the proposed public sector cuts; the vicious attack on the working class and trade union movement; to the importance of building the Socialist Party.

Hannah also drew comparisons between the success of Militant in playing a leading role in the 1983-87 Liverpool Labour council that won 60 million from Thatcher's Tory government, the defeat of the poll tax, and the need for the mobilisation of a broad, trade union based movement ready to fight the impending cuts.

Jake Moore spoke about the Youth Fight for Jobs campaign; our perspective on the current economic crisis; and what it means for young workers. Shrewsbury SP branch secretary Jim Reekie chaired the meeting.

Meeting attendees included Shropshire SP members, members of the Shropshire trades council, teachers and students. A finance appeal by the Shropshire SP youth secretary, Sam Morecroft, raised over 150 for the party's fighting fund. Shrewsbury Socialist Party also gained a new member following the public meeting.
