Tottenham: Stop fascist attacks

Over 300 people gathered for a protest vigil in Tottenham on 23 June after a small music festival in Markfield Park was attacked by Polish fascists. One person was stabbed. Around a dozen people threw flares, rocks and bottles.

At the vigil speakers expressed outrage and a commitment to protect all parts of the community from fear of attack. Supporters of TUSC were present along with a TUSC banner as were local community groups including Day Mer. The vigil was covered on London television; Polish TV cameras were also present.

There will be an antifascist solidarity demonstration at Markfield Park at 3pm on Saturday 28 June Many speakers emphasised the events were not a 'Polish problem.' The rapid response and the vigil's size shows that local people are determined that they won't let fascist groups intimidate people in the area. The organised labour movement must play a central role, starting by ensuring a visible presence on the 28 June demo.

Coronavirus crisis - Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

  • The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
  • Our 'fighting coronavirus workers' charter', outlines a programme to combat the virus and protect workers' living conditions.
  • When the health crisis subsides, we must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our special coronavirus appeal.
