Over the course of the day, thousands joined in the protest in Whitehall against May's attempt to stay in office by getting a deal with the reactionary DUP on 17 June.

The combination of being buoyed up by the advance of the Corbyn-led Labour Party and the deep anger and bitterness after the effective murder of scores of people in Grenfell Tower made for a lively protest, dominated by young people and with a strong presence from women.

The overwhelming mood was to fight back and remove the Tory government. This was reflected both in many of the speeches and the reception which Socialist Party members received.

The combination of our call for concrete action against the Tory government - building for a massive 1 July demo and a 24-hour general strike - attracted much interest. People keenly took our leaflets after reading its headline and at least 65 bought copies of the Socialist.

Hull

Hull's rally in support of Jeremy Corbyn and against the Tories brought together around 100 protesters in Victoria Square on 17 June.

The event was dominated by the horrific news from London of the Grenfell Tower fire. The rally stood for a minute's silent tribute to all the victims and survivors.

Hull Socialist Party members Mick Whale and Matt Whale spoke from the platform alongside other labour and trade union movement speakers, and were well-received by the crowd. Our members sold 80 copies of the Socialist at the event.

Cardiff

A protest against the Tories and for justice for Grenfell gathered dozens of people in a showing of class solidarity in Cardiff on 17 June. What struck us was not as much the people coming to the protest, but the outpouring of support from passers-by and bystanders, ordinary people who realise the price that we are all paying due to cuts and austerity.

The Socialist Party was an integral part of the protest, talking to people and underlining the role of capitalism and austerity and what we need to do to stop it happening again. We had a very good response, with more than 60 copies of the Socialist sold and a determined response to our demands.
