Lincoln: Save Drill Hall

Jacob Corr, Lincolnshire Socialist Party

The Socialist Party condemns the decision by Lincoln council to cut support for Drill Hall. The Labour-controlled council voted to fully end funding, after years of cuts, placing the service in jeopardy and jobs under threat.

Drill Hall is a vital public service, which provides access to a range of activities for the community. It's a jewel in the crown of local culture.

Labour councillors have decided to act as agents of austerity and make ordinary people pay for Tory cuts. Many residents feel betrayed. What's the point in voting Labour, if they carry out Tory policies?

There is an alternative to endless austerity. Set an emergency no-cuts budget, based on the needs of local people for decent jobs, homes and services.

And build a campaign for the missing money, united together with the community and the trade unions. Link up with other areas facing similar cuts.

Our public services have already faced ten years of austerity. Enough is enough. It's time for Labour councillors to fight back, or be prepared to face a challenge at the ballot box.

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 government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

  • 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.
  • When the health crisis subsides, 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.
