From campaigning to keep the schools closed until safety can be guaranteed, to battling job losses and demanding proper PPE for essential workers, Socialist Party members have been hard at work during this crisis in fighting for the working class!

75 members from across the Yorkshire, Northern, North West and East Midlands regions attended the Socialist Party’s first online, cross-regional branch organisers’ school on 31 May. The meeting raised over £700 for the fighting fund.

It was also attended by members from our US co-thinkers, the Independent Socialist Group. They gave a report on their work in the recent protests which have gripped the US following the brutal police murder of George Floyd.

Overall, the event was a great success and positively received by all who attended. The current situation does not deter the Socialist Party from efforts to educate and organise our members, and the important political work continues!
