"After seeing the branch's effect in the community, I decided to join"

Why I joined the Socialist Party: At first I was sceptical of the Socialist Party, and went to a meeting after gentle persuasion from a friend. But I was shocked and humbled, after meeting a group of people who gave up their spare time organising the working class

Why I joined: "I hope that more and more people are going to join the Socialist Party and the fight to end inequality"

Why I joined: "I am a Labour Party member and I recently decided to join the Socialist Party"

I joined the Labour Party as a school leaver in 1981 but by the mid-80s I left, completely disillusioned, and became politically inactive.

Why I joined: "I began to feel really exploited and to think about why"

I first heard about socialism from my mum when I was about 7 or 8. I remember being in the car and she had a Billy Bragg album playing. The Red Flag was on it and I asked her what it was about and what it meant and she sort of explained what socialism was.
