This union branch condemns the suspension of Jeremy Corbyn by the Labour Party and the removal of his parliamentary whip. Jeremy has broken no rule and has always opposed antisemitism.

This branch believes that the decision of Blairite Labour general secretary David Evans to suspend Jeremy for stating antisemitism within Labour has been "dramatically overstated for political reasons" is an incredible attack on the right of Labour Party members to express their views. This includes Constituency Labour Parties being been banned from passing motions that criticise the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) report or Corbyn's suspension.

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.

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 click here to donate to our Fighting Fund.
