Youth Fight for Jobs campaign

Good response in Bridgend

Three, let's be generous and say, more 'mature' Socialist Party members, launched the 'Youth Fight For Jobs' campaign on our stall in Bridgend on 31 January.

The response was tremendous, with 37 papers sold, 32 fighting fund raised and one potential member. Parents as well as young people took away our jobs leaflets and everyone was nodding their approval of our slogans - Fight for jobs, support the workers not the bankers!

The media propaganda about keeping out foreign workers and having British jobs for British workers was raised at the stall but we responded by saying there were no jobs available for any workers because of the bosses' crisis.

We were selling opposite a closed Woolies and pointed out that foreign workers were not to blame for the 30,000 jobs lost there recently. Similarly foreign workers are not responsible for the redundancies and lay-offs in Corus or Fords in Bridgend. It's the system that's wrong and that's why we are fighting for socialist nationalisation and a socialist answer to the capitalist crisis.

Our arguments received a positive response, especially when we raised about the need to fight for young people to have a future with decent jobs and a proper wage.

This campaign is going to get a big echo in the coming months as the Socialist Party takes the fight for jobs into every town and city in the country.
