Why I joined the Socialist Party
I am 22 years old and a new member of the Socialist Party. I'm sure there are many others who could join with us in our struggle for a fairer world. This is why I joined the Socialist Party:
Socialism offers something different, and is a change from the capitalist system that fails us all time and time again
Organised opposition is what we need, and we know it has potential...
Capitalism quite frankly just doesn't work, we need an alternative which caters for everybody; young, old, disadvantaged; not the privileged few!
In the future the destruction a capitalist society brings will only get worse, which is why we need the youth of today to rise up now before it is too late
Abandonment of our generation; it happened in the 80s and it is happening now. Why should we settle for exploitation and a life of no aspirations and poverty?
Labour do not represent the ordinary working class, we need a proper opposition to the neoliberal bloodsuckers at the top!
If we don't protect our rights and values now, how can we complain when they are stripped from us?
Showing apathy will never change things, politics is fundamental in how we live our lives, down to the very last detail. Do we want to live in a fair and free society or not? Then we have to fight for it and get involved! Make a change, because we all collectively have the power to transform society for the better!
