Building the Socialist Party

Harrogate

Harrogate may be one of the smallest Socialist Party branches but we have a regular Socialist Party town centre stall.

We get a good response to the campaigns against privatisation of Royal Mail and bringing the railways back under public, democratic control.

Our recent letters in the local paper referred to possible fracking in the district. We linked the socialist struggle against fracking with the struggle against austerity.

Derek Evans, Harrogate Socialist Party

Congress

The Socialist Party's 2014 national congress will take place on 8-10 March. Congress is the main decision-making body of the Socialist Party.

The documents on British Perspectives, party building, trade unions,• sales of the Socialist and finance have now been sent out to branches.

21 February is the deadline for branch resolutions, booking crèche places, and getting delegates names and £10 deposits to the national centre

28 February is the deadline for branch amendments and visitors' names

We appeal to all Socialist Party members and readers of the Socialist to help support delegates' and visitors' attendance costs, as well as support the Congress fighting fund collection.

Contact your local Socialist Party branch organisers or phone 020 8988 8777.

Coronavirus crisis - Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

  • The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
  • Our 'fighting coronavirus workers' charter', outlines a programme to combat the virus and protect workers' living conditions.
  • When the health crisis subsides, we must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our special coronavirus appeal.
