Manchester socialists campaigning against war, racism, terrorism and austerity

Following the horrific Manchester bombing on 22 May, Socialist Party members in the city have been campaigning against terrorism, war, racism and austerity and continuing our general election campaigning.

Jack Metcalf at the Socialist Party's campaign stall on 27 May said:

We're doing our regular stall in Market Street, campaigning against war, racism, terrorism and austerity.

We've been having a really good response today, people are still reeling a bit from the attacks but people are coming together in solidarity and are looking towards the future, looking towards the election and looking towards solutions so we can end this cycle of violence.

Looking towards funding our policing, funding our NHS and the vital services that are threatened with closure which were heavily used during the attack to a point that they wouldn't be able to do so again after the cuts which have been promised.

We've had a really good response from people. We had a bunch of lads really enthusiastically telling us what they thought of Theresa May, so much so that they nearly knocked our stall over!

In general we've had a really warm response, people really looking towards anti-austerity politics. 10 an hour, trade union rights, the NHS and renationalisation are all back on the agenda. It's what people are talking about and they're really pleased to see us saying it.

This comment featured on the Socialist Party's weekly elections Facebook broadcast on 28 May. See the Socialist Party's Facebook page to watch this and other broadcasts.
