Protest Against Blair

We've Had Enough!

LABOUR'S SPRING conference is in Manchester on 12-14 March. And Saturday 13 March will see workers from Manchester and beyond marching to show Labour we've had enough!

Hugh Caffrey, Manchester Socialist Party

Seven years of Labour rule and we've precious little to show for it - the Tory anti-union laws remain in place, fees and debt are obliterating the hopes of many of today's young people for a university education and the Iraq war and occupation has revealed the lies, corruption and spin deployed by Labour in the interests of big business.

When the RMT railworkers' union resolved to support the Scottish Socialist Party, the Blairites responded with an avalanche of attacks, resulting in the RMT's expulsion from the Labour Party.

Yet within days more track workers were slaughtered by the corner-cutting of rail maintenance companies, which Labour continue to subsidise with our taxes.

Enough is enough! Manchester journalists are mobilising for the demonstration.

They're sick of the anti-union laws and government attacks on BBC workers, in preparation for privatisation. Sacked electricians are joining the protests. They're campaigning against cowboy construction companies which are still sending workers to their deaths.

Firefighters 

Firefighters and civil servants will demonstrate as part of their campaigns against the destruction of our public services. Workers and young people from many other campaigns will bring their own grievances to the demonstration.

Socialist Party members are building the demonstration in support of all these battles. We were the first to point to Labour's transformation into a party of big business. That transformation is now obvious to increasing numbers of workers.

It's time for a new party of the working class, a mass organisation really representing our interests. 

We would campaign for such a party to adopt socialist policies which could carry through the socialist transformation of Britain - putting an end to this rotten capitalist system.

  • Join the protests - Saturday 13 March, 12 noon, All Saints Park, Oxford Road, Manchester.


Join the socialists - fight for system change!

Socialist Party public meeting:

"The Case for a New Workers' Party".

All welcome.

7pm, Tuesday 16 March

Friends' Meeting House, Mount St. (behind central library, next to Albert Square), central Manchester.
