Come to Summer Camp!

Friday 25 August to Monday 28 August

NOW'S THE time to book up for Summer Camp. For three days at the end of August, you can relax in pleasant surroundings in the Essex countryside. You can participate in a wide range of political discussions - organised for every morning and evening. And there's plenty of time free to try out new sports and activities - like canoeing, mountain biking and climbing. Instructors supervise all activities, so beginners of any age can participate.

There is entertainment in the evenings - the famous quiz, with a special one for children - and campers with musical talent can show it off round the campfire.

The political discussions will cover issues like: US 'superpower' - is the Empire in crisis?, the launch of the new Socialist Party pamphlet Muslims Under Siege, How a new workers' party can be built, Women's' rights and the 'raunch culture', a rally on the 70th anniversary of the Spanish Revolution, Marxism and science and much more.

There will be sessions organised by and for younger people and people new to the Socialist Party.

International Socialist Resistance members and supporters can participate in political art and drama activities as well as question and answer sessions and "how-to" workshops.

There's a creche for younger children throughout all the political discussions and there will be plenty of opportunity to play cricket, football, rounders and any other sports and games you're keen on.

What an end to the summer - meet fellow socialists from all over the country. Have some good political discussions, some fun and of course some sun.

Book your place now. Send a 5 deposit per person to: Socialist Summer Camp, PO Box 24697, London E11 1YD. Telephone 020 8988 8762

The camp takes place from Friday 25 August to Monday 28 August at a campsite near Chelmsford. The site has good facilities, including for wheelchair users. The camp costs 35 for adults and 12 for children, 90 for families. Day tickets cost 10.

Tents and mattresses can be hired. Evening meals are available at a reasonable cost and there will be a burger bar.

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.
