Socialist Case for Exit

From The Socialist newspaper, 7 December 2001

March Against The Bosses' EU: Fight for socialism

Tens of thousands of people will be marching in Brussels on 14 December against poverty and cuts, and against the war in Afghanistan.

While the leaders of the capitalist EU are holding a summit, we will be opposing their support for US imperialism's war, and their policies of privatisation, low wages and cuts in benefits. Their measures are purely to advance the profits of the multinationals in Europe.

With the world economy now plunging into crisis, EU leaders will try to resort to further attacks on the living standards of ordinary people, so it is essential that we say: "enough is enough", and help to build a massive resistance to their policies and system.

We will also be voicing our opposition to attacks on civil liberties being carried out following 11 September in the US. In Britain Tony Blair is introducing imprisonment without trial for suspected terrorists; EU Commissioners are discussing measures against 'terrorists' which could be used against anti-globalisation demonstrators and workers taking strike action.

Socialist Party members in England and Wales will be joining the Committee for a Workers International (CWI) and International Socialist Resistance (ISR) contingent on the march. This will be a very lively contingent, with vehicles broadcasting music as well as providing platforms for speeches in at least eight different languages. Leaflets will be distributed in a number of different languages, stating the case not just against the capitalist EU, but arguing the need for a socialist alternative.

The following day, on 15 December, young people from all over Europe are taking part in a conference to launch a global anti-capitalist youth organisation. ISR in England and Wales has coaches going to Brussels that will arrive in time for the demonstration on 14 December and leave after the youth conference on 15 December.

If you would like to come on one of the coaches then contact ISR without delay to secure your place.
