London Youth Against Racism activity

The London Youth against Racism in Europe (YRE) and International Socialist Resistance (ISR) protests against the election of a member of the British National Party to the London Assembly drew together politicised young people who want to fight against the BNP's racist policies and ideas.

YRE and ISR are initiating a campaign that exposes their racist lies but also fights for decent jobs, homes and services and a new political party that stands up for workers and young people.

At the first organising meeting on 20 May activists decided to build the campaign across London in the coming weeks.

The campaign kicked off with London activists petitioning and campaigning on Hackney's Mare Street, covering bus stops and shopping areas. We petitioned and talked to young people and workers. Many were interested in coming to the national demonstration against the BNP on 21 June, taking our leaflets and buying copies of The Socialist.

We also leafleted for the London YRE gig on Saturday 14 June in Whitechapel. More action is planned in the forthcoming weeks in Lewisham, Camden, Romford and other areas. ISR/YRE public meetings on how to combat the BNP are taking place across London. Get in touch for details.

    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.
