May Day greetings in the Socialist

Celebrate the struggles of workers and the oppressed this May Day by placing a greeting in the Socialist.

One hundred years ago this year, the workers' movement in Russia threw aside capitalism and took power for the first time. The Socialist believes the Russian revolution is the greatest event in human history - yet.

We have been instrumental in putting forward a political and industrial strategy to beat the bosses and their system of crisis, inequality and war. Help us build the movement which can achieve it. Place a May Day greeting using the form on this page, to be published in the Socialist issue 946 (27 April to 3 May 2017).
