The Socialist May Day greetings appeal 2015

Implacable resolve of the lowest paid

The need for an organised, independent, political expression of the will of the 99% and our demands for health, homes and decent jobs has never been greater.

This is the explanation over the years for the increasing financial support from Whipps Cross Hospital workers for the Socialist's May Day greetings appeal.

Generosity

These health workers are often on the lowest incomes. It has been precisely they who have shown the greatest resolve, through generosity of donation, to change society.

Anger is rising among health workers. At the effects of an economic crisis not of their making. And at unbearable conditions of work and falling real pay. At the same time, the benefits of a one-sided, so-called 'economic recovery' go to booming CEOs' pay and bonuses - and 11% pay increases for their MPs.

Search

This is fuelling workers' search for a political solution to an NHS made worse year on year by the policies of the Con-Dem coalition government and its Labour predecessors. Destabilising and fragmenting reorganisations, privatisation and cuts have ravaged our health service.

May Day is a reminder of the historic memory and implacable resolve of the mighty working class movement in Britain and internationally. It is this resolve that the Socialist articulates: to make crisis-ridden capitalism history, along with its wars and poverty, by making socialism our future.

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.
