Video: The fight of all our lives - for a 24-hour general strike

Socialist Party general secretary Peter Taaffe, speaking at a joint London Socialist Party and Socialist Students meeting.

Peter discusses the significance of the agreement at TUC congress on the need to consider a 24-hour general strike, the role of the Socialist Party and the National Shop Stewards Network in that decision, and the failure of the three main parties to solve the economic crisis.

Peter outlines how events will likely unfold as the pressure on the trade union leaders to act increases, and as the government cuts threaten to continue to destroy living standards.

"All of this shows the incapacity of capitalism to take society forward", Peter argues, and advocates an alternative socialist organisation of society along democratically planned lines.
