What did you think of Socialism 2021?

An inspiring and optimistic weekend. So great to be with so many Socialist Party members, especially in person. Great to see so many young members there too.

The workshops were great, and the Saturday rally had really good and rousing speakers. The message from Sharon Graham, Unite union general secretary, and the rousing speech from Ian Hodson, Bfawu president, on his bakers' union disaffiliation from Labour, and plans for political engagement in the future, signal an important shift and a way forward for the trade union movement, and for the fight for a new mass workers' party. I feel energised to carry on the work and the fight for socialism.

I lost my Socialism virginity this weekend. Two days of education, friendship and fun. Brilliant venue, great contributions from Socialist Party members in the workshops, and the Wombat hostel accommodation wasn't bad either. Great job by the organisers, cannot wait for next year

Mark Gee, Grimsby

I have just finished another brilliant political Marxist educational weekend at Socialism 2021 on Zoom. I attended the Marxist analysis of modern monetary theory; world economic perspectives; what has happened to the European 'left', and how to use the transitional method and programme. Absolutely brilliant discussions. The Socialist Party - especially the social media tech team - should be congratulated on its organisational acumen in managing this educational event.

Jimmy Haddow, Edinburgh

What a fantastic day, and what an inspiring rally

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.
