Socialists attract support at first Newton Abbot meeting
Richard Worth, Torbay and South Devon Socialist Party
The Socialist Party held its first public meeting in Newton Abbot on 15 October: 'Political parties in crisis, living standards falling - the case for socialism!' We are fighting for ourselves, our children and for children yet to be born. In today's crisis-ridden capitalist world, the choice really is socialism or barbarism.
The meeting was really well attended with new faces, many Socialist Party members, and some Labour Party members too. A financial appeal raised £105.30, which after paying for the meeting's costs gave a magnificent £58.70 to the Socialist Party's fighting fund.
Local NHS campaigner Lynn Gunnigle spoke about the fight to save Dartmouth Hospital from sell-off, and to reopen it. Robin Clapp, Socialist Party South West regional secretary, explained why Jeremy Corbyn must take action against the Blairites and fight the coming general election on socialist policies to beat the Tories' attacks on workers.
