On Wednesday 14 April, the Socialist Party northern region held a public meeting to discuss the need for socialists in our local councils. Hannah Sell, the Socialist Party general secretary, introduced the discussion with a fierce critical analysis, demonstrating how even a single councillor putting forward a socialist, working-class alternative could act as a catalyst to build a mass movement for change.

After Hannah spoke, a fighting fund appeal was made. This galvanised attendees who generously pledged a total of 710 in donations, including five people who matched a 50 contribution made by Socialist Party member Wilf. The speaker spurred a mood of resilience at a crucial time as we continue with our local election campaigns, and the money raised will go towards building this movement and providing materials so our campaign can be as effective and far reaching as possible.
