From The Socialist newspaper, 4 July 2018

5 reasons to walk out on 13 July - number four:

No to sexism! No to Trump!

Keishia Taylor, North London Socialist Party

On 13 July, Theresa May is rolling out the red carpet for sexist, racist, billionaire Trump. Join young people all over the country walking out of schools and colleges to protest Trump and the Tories.

Trump has boasted about grabbing women, regularly makes horrendous sexist remarks and has defended sexual abusers, emboldening sexists everywhere.

May calls herself a feminist, but by welcoming him with open arms she is endorsing his disgusting sexist behaviour.

Trump and the Tories stand up for the rich and 1% - their policies attack the worst off while doing favours for big business and their cronies.

Women are disproportionately hit by cuts, the housing crisis and attacks on the NHS, and tend to have more precarious and lower paid jobs.

The capitalist system promotes backwards ideas about women and benefits from us doing domestic work for free while taking away our rights and support.

We must challenge the politics of the super-rich where a tiny elite prioritise profit over the lives of ordinary people.

Instead we can fight for a socialist society where the resources are publicly owned and democratically controlled by working class people, not hoarded by billionaires.

Only by getting rid of capitalism can we end sexism, macho culture and rigid gender roles.

Everyone who is against sexism should demonstrate against Trump and the Tories. We can show them that we will not tolerate sexism, racism, discrimination and the rule of the 1%.

We need to show solidarity with the mass demonstrations and walkouts against sexism and gun violence in the US. Recent victories of youth and women's movements in Ireland, Argentina and the Spanish state show that these methods work!

Help us build a mass movement of women, workers and all the oppressed against sexist, racist, billionaire Trump and his Tory partners in crime. Join us to fight for a socialist society based on solidarity and equality!
