Sarah Sachs-Eldridge, Socialist Party national organiser

Whatever happens on 8 June, we need the biggest socialist voice possible to continue the fight to transform society.

Theresa May's snap general election might just bite back! It has opened the door to some very dangerous ideas - dangerous, that is, to the Tories and the capitalist class of billionaire bankers and bosses whose interests they represent.

Corbyn's manifesto has kindled and rekindled excitement that some of the basic but essential foundations of a society capable of meeting our needs - free education, public ownership, trade union rights, council housing - are possible.

Of course not everyone is excited about the prospect of ending foodbank Britain. The Tory-dominated press and media, the Tories themselves and the Tories within the Labour Party aka the Blairites (who, although largely quiet at the moment, are hoping to kick Corbyn out) will do all they can to block these ideas from becoming a reality.

The Socialist Party has a proven record of mobilising working class and young people to fight in defence of rights and living standards - from the 18 million-strong movement that defeated Thatcher and her poll tax, to the struggle in Liverpool that won money from Thatcher to build 5,000 council homes, to the east London families who declared they would not budge from Butterfields and defeated a rip-off landlord's plans to evict them.

By joining the Socialist Party you are joining the most determined and effective socialist organisation in the country. Our branches meet every week for inclusive and democratic political discussion and to organise our forces to work with campaigns, trade unions and activists in our communities.

We act collectively to bring confidence in the potential power of the working class when organised to all the movements we participate in - and that is how we can win.

Don't wait - join us!
