'Meeting' to discuss socialist ideas - more vital than ever during the crisis

Leeds Socialist Party meeting via Zoom

During the corona crisis the Socialist Party is still meeting. Many branches are utilising online resources. Go to socialistparty.org.uk/whatson to join in your area.

East London

We had 15 people at the East London Socialist Party branch meeting - biggest of the year so far. We were online via Zoom!

James Ivens spoke on coronavirus.

At our meeting we had people - in self-isolation/with childcare/still at work - who couldn't normally attend otherwise.

Next week we're discussing the poll tax - when working-class communities got organised and beat the Tories - with one of the leaders of the campaign.

Ian Pattison

Southampton

We managed a combined real and virtual branch meeting, with 14 of us. We had a report back from the Socialist Party Congress, and a discussion on what's happening in Britain, around the world, and Covid-19.

There were reports of workers' struggle - and victories - from Socialist Party members working on buses and in universities. Our branch meeting agreed to write to the leader of the Labour council, outlining what we see as key tasks that need to be urgently addressed.

Reading

We put our Socialist Party branch meeting live online. 17 of us discussed what is happening and many others were able to view our message.
