The best place to start - join the Socialist Party

Lincolnshire Socialist Party

Jacob Corr, a member of the newly relaunched Lincolnshire Socialist Party branch

I joined the Labour Party, like many people, in the surge of support that grew around Jeremy Corbyn. Finally! Someone who is saying what we all can see.

Big business and the mega-rich are destroying our NHS, eroding our public services and stripping our economy to line their own pockets. Somebody who will stand up for what the working class has been begging for since the Blair years. Someone with principles and a proven record of sticking to it when push comes to shove. Someone who will stand up for me.

As the years progressed, it became apparent the Corbyn movement was dying. The pro-Corbyn campaign, Momentum, failed to get itself off the internet and onto the streets.

I was looking for a positive, proactive alternative. That's when I turned to the Socialist Party. I am extremely proud to be the branch secretary for the newly relaunched Lincolnshire branch.

In my short time in the party, I have already found Socialist Party members participating in local campaigns, holding regular street stalls and making our faces shown at local protests. Socialist Party members are active in the labour movement, from the trade unions to the campaign to save the A&E in Grantham.

Our members are passionate. They put their blood, sweat and tears into organising to fight for the real revolutionary change that we so desperately need.

We have a long road ahead of us to our goal, a socialist world run for the millions not the millionaires. But I know in my heart that it begins where we are - on the streets with ordinary people grouping together to fight for each other. For a system that works for everyone.
