From The Socialist newspaper, 5 March 2014
Oppose the EDL in Worcester
The far-right, racist English Defence League is planning a rally in Worcester on 22 March. There will be a counter-mobilisation.
Anti-racists are to meet at 12 noon, the Guildhall, Worcester. The job now is to get to trade union branches, anti-racist groups and community organisations to mobilise the majority who oppose racism.
We must clearly explain how the capitalist parties' support for cuts, job losses and lower living standards provides the soil for racism to grow.

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.
