The Socialist 18 January 2017, Resist Trump

spotLabour's civil war continues - build a mass workers' party

Corbyn steps up anti-establishment tone - Momentum takes further undemocratic turn: Trust in politicians and all sections of the 'establishment' is falling even further. An annual trust survey shows that trust in the British government has dropped from a low 36% in January 2016 to just 26% now. Only 18% of respondents said they trust political parties in general to "do what is right"

Resist Trump

spotResist Trump

No to racism, sexism and attacks on workers' rights: On 20 (the day of Trump's inauguration) and 21 January, we are joining with others to call for millions across the United States and worldwide to come out in mass demonstrations and student strikes to begin building a powerful grassroots resistance.

Towards a general strike against the Nieto government: In recent weeks, mass protests have erupted throughout Mexico following a hike in gas and electricity prices - dubbed the "gasolinazo" - decreed by the right-wing Peņa Nieto administration

spot'Black alert' NHS: Demonstrate 4 March

I find it frightening that NHS trusts are unable to guarantee patient safety. I find it shocking that the Red Cross, an organisation normally associated with international aid, has found it necessary to declare a "humanitarian crisis" in the fifth largest economy in the world.

Britain's biggest retailer, Tesco, reported that it had its best sales growth at the end of last year's quarter for over five years. At the same time, 1,015 Tesco workers will lose their jobs as Tesco announced that it is closing two distribution centres in Hertfordshire and Derbyshire

spotThe Socialist: read it, write it, sell it

Two thousand more people snapped up the Socialist on the streets over the last ten issues of 2016 than the same period in 2015. Our newspaper is a beacon for the idea that ordinary working class people can run society in our own interests.

Socialist readers' comments and reviews

spotWhy I joined the Socialist Party

"I witnessed the effort and commitment displayed by members" Some of my generation are frustrated, angry and upset with the Tory government and the way the whole world seems to be heading. I say to them that the Socialist Party is an organisation in which you can actually witness the difference your actions can make
