Support the Shrewsbury pickets

Ricky Tomlinson's announcement that the Justice for the Shrewsbury Pickets Campaign has launched a petition to secure the release of state documents, deserves maximum support.

This could be vital in proving the innocence of the building workers who were framed and jailed at the insistence of the big building conglomerates in the early 1970s for alleged conspiracy under an Act introduced in the 13th century.

Following on from the magnificent success of the campaign to secure justice for the Hillsborough 96, and now the investigation into the unlawful activity of the Metropolitan and South Yorkshire police during the miners' strike when hundreds of miners were framed, 'people power' has shown that even the most corrupt bodies of the state can ultimately be held accountable.

Hopefully the Shrewsbury Pickets petition will assist in righting the wrong perpetrated 40 years ago and, in addition, send a clear message to present-day abusers of political power that they ultimately will be held accountable.

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.
