Why I joined the Socialist Party
The Socialist Party has been on the front line of the campaign to defend Jeremy Corbyn's anti-austerity leadership from the right, photo Socialist Party (Click to enlarge)
Michaela, Huddersfield Socialist Party
Back in August last year, I attended a #KeepCorbyn rally in Bradford with my partner. I had recently become interested in current affairs with the Brexit vote and the immediate fallout from the mainstream politicians.
I listened to several speakers and was impressed with what I heard from two Socialist Party members (Tanis Belsham-Wray and Peter Robson).
I spoke to Peter afterwards, and he invited me to a branch meeting a couple of days later. I quickly found a great circle of like-minded comrades and joined the branch soon after with my partner.
Through speaking in meetings, I felt myself growing more confident.
We spearheaded a campaign to keep a local homeless shelter open after Bradford Council had decided to award a new contract to a lesser provider. Immediately I felt empowered by being a part of something that was striving to stop the council cuts and trying to make a change.
I've now moved to Huddersfield, and while I will be sorry to leave the Bradford branch (and some great comrades!) I am looking forward to getting stuck in and helping to make a difference in the local and national struggles.
I will be attending the NHS demo on 4 March and I'm really looking forward to it as it will be my first demo!
