From The Socialist newspaper, 14 December 2001

Build The Resistance

Fight for socialism

ON 13 and 14 December thousands of young people and workers will be marching on the streets of Brussels. They will be saying 'No to war', 'No to privatisation and job cuts', 'No to poverty and inequality' and 'No to capitalism'.

The Socialist spoke to some of the demonstrators about why they are going to Brussels to protest at the European Union (EU) summit.

"The EU has issued a directive demanding rail privatisation in every member country. My RMT branch is sending a delegation to the summit protest as part of our fight against privatisation and to help build an international resistance to an international attack on workers."

Bill, RMT member London Underground

"I'm from West Africa and have seen how capitalism is affecting the poor there. There is a growing class divide and that's why people are becoming more angry and bitter. The war in Afghanistan is one of the ways the US is seeking to increase its power and capitalist interests and to control the wealth of the world".

Samuel

"This is a very dangerous war - not just for people in Afghanistan, but for the whole region which is already unstable. I'm going to Brussels because demonstrations like the ones in Seattle and Genoa make more people aware of the problems of capitalism and its institutions like the IMF, WTO and EU. I'm going with International Socialist Resistance (ISR). It is good that lots of young people will be meeting together from different countries.

Finn

"The main problem is the difference between rich and poor. There are many people who don't like the society we live in. The more people that demonstrate the more effect we can have in persuading people to join us. They will see that there are people who are fighting to change things - who have the ideas to change things."
