Southampton Socialist Party: Tories in meltdown, workers' revolt in France and capitalist crisis

Preparing the struggle for socialism in 2019

Thursday 10th January 2019, 7.30pm

Room 1101 in the Avenue Campus, Highfield Road, Southampton SO17 1BF

What's your view of the crisis unfolding in Britain, across Europe and beyond? Will the Tory crisis lead to an imminent general election? Will other governments in Europe face revolts like in France? How can a movement for socialism develop and spread? Come and have your say about the prospects for 2019 and discuss with others about the way forward for socialists.

Speaker: Sarah Wrack

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.
