Global action day against TTIP

Saturday was a 'global action against TTIP' day (TTIP - the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership currently being negotiated internationally).

Salford TUSC organised a protest early on Saturday morning (before participating in two election hustings) outside our local hospital Salford Royal, to protest about the threat to the NHS from TTIP.

During the protest we discussed the national TUSC television broadcast as we had all seen it the night before. Verdict: 'excellent'. One TUSC and NHS activist, Chris Hadfield, called it: 'Refreshingly uncompromising and absolutely reasonable'.

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.
