Campaign for a New Workers' Party - come to conference!

OVER 400 trade union unionists, youth student activists and community campaigners are expected to attend the Campaign for a New Workers' Party conference in London. Most of the delegates will have experience of fighting the big business agenda of New Labour and see the urgent necessity of building a left-wing political alternative.

The conference speakers will include Mark Serwotka, general secretary of the PCS union, whose members are currently fighting massive job cuts in the civil service; Socialist Party councillor Dave Nellist and; a member of WASG the new Left formation in Germany - which won 8.7% of the vote in last September's general election, securing 54 deputies in the parliament.

However, the main aim of the conference will be discussion on what practical steps can be taken to fight for a new workers' party in the trade unions and the wider community in the coming weeks and months.

In the run-up to the conference over 1,200 activists have signed the CNWP declaration with more signing up at public activities and on-line every day.

For more on the Campaign for a New Workers' Party, go to email or write to CNWP, PO Box 858, London E11 1YG.

Why I support CNWP

"As New Labour shifts more and more to the right, the ordinary people of Britain are becoming alienated from and disillusioned with politics. The working class of this country now has very little political representation. The time for reclaiming the Labour party has been and gone, it is now vital that a new mass workers' party is formed to stand up to New Labour and to truly represent the interests of working-class Britain."

Morys Ireland, student and USDAW member, West Sussex.

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.
