Our Demands

Our demands include:

Public services

  • No to ALL cuts in jobs, public services and benefits. Defend our pensions.
  • No to privatisation and the Private Finance Initiative (PFI). Renationalise all privatised utilities and services, with compensation paid only on the basis of proven need.
  • Fully fund all services and run them under accountable, democratic committees that include representatives of service workers and users.
  • Free, publicly run, good quality education, available to all at any age. Abolish university tuition fees now and introduce a living grant. No to academies and 'Free schools'!
  • A socialist NHS to provide for everyone's health needs - free at the point of use and under democratic control. Kick out private contractors!
  • Keep council housing publicly owned. For a massive building programme of publicly owned housing, on an environmentally sustainable basis, to provide good quality homes with low rents.

Work and income

  • Trade union struggle to increase the minimum wage to 8 an hour without exemptions as an immediate step towards 10 an hour. For an annual increase in the minimum wage linked to average earnings.
  • All workers, including part-timers, temps, casual and migrant workers to have trade union rates of pay, employment protection, and sickness and holiday rights from day one of employment.
  • An immediate 50% increase in the state retirement pension, as a step towards a living pension.
  • Reject 'Workfare'. For the right to decent benefits, education, training, or a job, without compulsion.
  • Scrap the anti-trade union laws! For fighting trade unions, democratically controlled by their members. Full-time union officials to be regularly elected and receive no more than a worker's wage. Support the National Shop Stewards Network.
  • A maximum 35-hour week with no loss of pay.

Environment

  • Major research and investment into replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy and into ending the problems of early obsolescence and un-recycled waste.
  • Public ownership of the energy generating industries. No to nuclear power. No to Trident.
  • A democratically planned, low fare, publicly owned transport system, as part of an overall plan against environmental pollution.

Rights

  • Oppose discrimination on the grounds of race, sex, disability, sexuality, age, and all other forms of prejudice.
  • Repeal all laws that trample over civil liberties. For the right to protest! End police harassment.
  • Defend abortion rights. For a woman's right to choose when and whether to have children.
  • For the right to asylum. No to racist immigration laws.
  • New workers' party
  • For a new mass workers' party drawing together workers, young people and activists from workplace, community, environmental and anti-war campaigns, to provide a fighting, political alternative to the pro-big business parties.
  • Trade unions to disaffiliate from the Labour Party now and aid the building of a new workers' party! Support the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition as an important step towards this.

Socialism and internationalism

  • No to imperialist wars and occupations. Withdraw the troops immediately from Afghanistan!
  • Tax the super-rich! For a socialist government to take into public ownership the top 150 companies and the banking system that dominate the British economy, and run them under democratic working class control and management. Compensation to be paid only on the basis of proven need.
  • A democratic socialist plan of production based on the interests of the overwhelming majority of people, and in a way that safeguards the environment.
  • No to the bosses' neoliberal European Union! For a socialist Europe and a socialist world!
