Young Socialist day of action - We won't mortgage our future
The Tories want to make young people pay for the capitalist crisis. Young Socialists in London, however, made it clear that we are prepared to fight for our future.
In July, Young Socialists organised mega campaign stalls in Finsbury Park, in north London, and Peckham and Vauxhall, in south London, to build a campaign around the youth charter produced by young members of the Socialist Party (see socialistparty.org.uk).
Speaking on the megaphone, we said that we won't mortgage our future for the capitalist crisis. We stressed the importance of young people getting organised and joining and becoming active in a trade union.
We raised our demands - £15-an-hour minimum wage with no exemptions, a mass programme of council house building and real investment in creating socially useful jobs.
These stalls were organised by new, young members of the Socialist Party. Groups of young people enthusiastically signed up to get involved.
Young Socialists is a fighting organisation aiming to bring together young workers and students. We will hold a day of action on A-level results day, 13 August, plus more events in London on 22 August (see back page).
