May Day greetings in the Socialist

Celebrate workers' struggle and help fund the working-class press this International Workers' Day by placing a May Day greeting in the Socialist.

Globally, the capitalist establishment has been rocked by mass popular uprisings. In Britain, the need for organised workers' action against the Tories couldn't be clearer.

Which paper details a fighting industrial strategy to beat the anti-union laws? Who explains how councils can set budgets that defy the Tory cuts? Where can you read about the practical programme needed to reconstitute a mass party for working-class political representation?

The Socialist. We report and discuss strategy for the strikes and struggles the bosses' press smears or ignores.

Help us build the working-class movement and the fight for socialism. Place a May Day greeting using the form on this page, to be published in the Socialist issue 1084 (30 April to 5 May 2020).
