International news in brief

Austria: Socialists organise refugees' solidarity...

On 3 October around 150,000 people filled the city centre of Vienna to fight for the rights of refugees. It was an unprecedented sign of solidarity and strength. SLP (CWI, Austria) had an awesome contingent, and brought dozens of students and parents from schools to the demo.

A SLP member led a huge part of the demo from a truck, tirelessly agitating and spreading our ideas for hours, and receiving enthusiastic responses.

See article - 'Refugee crisis, solidarity and resistance' by Sebastian Kugler, SLP on www.socialistworld.net

... and in Greece too

Xekinima (CWI, Greece) comrades are campaigning in solidarity with the refugees that arrive daily in Greece, organising help and local networks to deal with the situation. The response from the poorer neighbourhoods is very positive.

Brazil: 'Yes to water! No to profits!'

Demonstration (above) in São Paulo against the sacking of more than 600 workers from Sabesp (the water and sewage company), including LSR (CWI, Brazil) member Marzeni Pereira.

The struggle is also for water rights for the people in the context of the worst water crisis in the history of the city. The demo was organised by the movement "Yes to Water! No to Profits!" (launched by LSR members) and the Roofless Workers Movement (MTST), with the support of other movements and trade union organisations.

Coronavirus crisis - 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.
  • Our 'fighting coronavirus workers' charter', outlines a programme to combat the virus and protect workers' living conditions.
  • 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 special coronavirus appeal.
