Build a movement to defeat Trump!

Stop Trump

Stop Trump   (Click to enlarge)

Bigoted, misogynist billionaire US president Donald Trump has reinstated his discriminatory travel ban on six majority Muslim countries and suspending the US refugee assistance programme. He also continues to reward big corporations with tax breaks while attacking healthcare provision, and adopting measures that will wreck the environment but boost the profits of 'big oil', etc.

However, as Socialist Alternative (US co-thinkers of the Socialist Party) city councillor Kshama Sawant says: "Trump can be defeated. But we need to continue to build our united movement of the 99%, independent of corporate politicians, and prepare for the mass nonviolent civil disobedience that will be necessary to defend and expand our rights, and defeat the right-wing!"

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.
