New Socialist Party pamphlet: Fight racism, fight for socialism
The Socialist Party's Black and Asian Group has produced a new pamphlet called 'Fight racism, fight for socialism'. It is a collection of articles from the Socialist and looks at some of these key questions of why racism exists and how to fight it.
April Ashley, Socialist Party Black and Asian Group and Unison NEC black women members' seat (personal capacity), says in the introduction: "The Socialist Party argues that capitalism is the root cause of racism which is used in order to divide and rule working people so that the capitalist system can extract profits for the benefit of the 1% and the detriment of the rest of us. The Socialist Party agrees with Malcom X, that 'you can't have capitalism without racism.'
"The Socialist Party has a long history of fighting racism and fighting the conditions that breed racism. From confronting the British National Party in the 90s to drive them off the streets of Welling and Tower Hamlets with Youth Against Racism in Europe, to mobilising against the English Defence League."
