Come to the NHS demo!

WHEN LABOUR ministers show themselves only to be concerned with glad-handing private-sector bosses and potential privatisers, it is clearly time for the trade unions to start organising against their plans to decimate our public services.

The trade union led demonstration against cutbacks and privatisation in the national health service is now just four weeks away. Health workers and 'Save our NHS' campaigners around the country should make sure there is a big turnout for this important protest. The demonstration should be seen as the start of a mass campaign to defend the NHS and other vital public services.

  • Stop cuts, closures and privatisation. Demonstration Saturday 3 November, 2007. 11am. Assemble at Temple Place on Victoria Embankment.

  • Swansea meeting

    SWANSEA TRADE Union Council public meeting.

    Stop the bed closures, Stop the job cuts, Defend the NHS.

    Dolphin Hotel, Swansea city centre.
    Wednesday 10 October, 7.30pm.

    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.
