This union branch condemns the suspension of Jeremy Corbyn by the Labour Party and the removal of his parliamentary whip. Jeremy has broken no rule and has always opposed antisemitism.

This branch believes that the decision of Blairite Labour general secretary David Evans to suspend Jeremy for stating antisemitism within Labour has been "dramatically overstated for political reasons" is an incredible attack on the right of Labour Party members to express their views. This includes Constituency Labour Parties being been banned from passing motions that criticise the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) report or Corbyn's suspension.

This branch believes that this represents a political attack on the pro-worker policies expressed in the Labour 2017 and 2019 general election manifestos under Jeremy's leadership.

Keir Starmer is intent on moving Labour in the direction of big business interests, shown by his support for Tory Prime Minister Boris Johnson keeping schools and colleges open during the new lockdown.

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 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.
  • 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.
