The Socialist May Day greetings appeal 2015
Implacable resolve of the lowest paid
Len Hockey, Unite branch secretary, Whipps Cross Hospital (personal capacity)
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.
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.
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.
