Join ISR in a summer of protest!

Wales International Socialist Resistance campaigning

Wales International Socialist Resistance campaigning

International Socialist Resistance (ISR) have planned a summer of campaigning and activity. Do you want to be a part of it?

Ben Robinson ISR national co-ordinator

ISR conference this year voted to relaunch our campaign against low pay, under the name 'Boost our pay', organising around four main demands, including a living wage for all regardless of age, and an end to insecure working hours. We want to launch the campaign in towns and cities around the country, calling meetings involving trade unionists and ISR members, and anyone interested in campaigning against low pay.

June and early July will see the number of young people at work or looking for jobs increase, as the year comes to an end for school, college and university students. However, low pay is affecting young people right now and, where possible, we can begin to campaign on the issue immediately.

It is summer, the sun will be shining (hopefully!) and people will be flocking to the parks. Whether there is a local festival on, or it is just a hot afternoon, campaigning stalls in and around parks are bound to be good ways to meet young people interested in getting involved in ISR.

This summer also sees a series of other protests. The G8 is taking place in Germany from 2-8 June, where the leaders of the main capitalist countries will get together to discuss further plans to make the rich even richer at our expense.

ISR members from England and Wales will be travelling over to take part in the protests, expected to be hundreds of thousands strong (see back page).

ISR members agreed at our conference to get involved in the protests against the government renewing Trident nuclear weapons around the end of June. We will also be taking part in the LGBT Pride events at various places across the country, with the main one in London on 30 June.

ISR is involved in campaigning around all of these issues and more. We organise locally in democratic groups, having regular discussions on our ideas and the socialist alternative to the present capitalist system.

If you would like to find out more about ISR or get involved in the events over the summer, feel free to contact us (details below).
