London demo: Protect the right to strike

Thursday 19th December 2019, 12.30pm

Parliament Square, opposite parliament

Boris Johnson's government is planning to introduce minimum service levels in the transport sector during industrial action - an attempt to ban transport workers from going on strike.
This will be part of the Queen's Speech in parliament on 19 December.
A demonstration outside parliament has been called for 12.30pm by the RMT transport union and the PCS.
The National Shop Stewards Network (NSSN) has moved its 1pm demonstration on the same issue to also be at 12.30pm, to maximise the turnout at that time.

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.
  • 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 Fighting Fund.
