Socialist Students online conference - poster campaign

  (Click to enlarge)

Louie Bertolin, Birmingham Socialist Students

On Wednesday 17 February, Socialist Students organised a postering campaign through Selly Oak in Birmingham to advertise our upcoming online conference. This neighbourhood, mostly populated by students, has seen closure of its pubs and leisure centres during the coronavirus pandemic. But students still populate the streets and we are angry and frustrated.

Students have been forced to pay tuition fees and astronomical rents while being unable to attend their lectures. University managers have used every move in their playbook to minimise their costs and increase their income, no matter the consequences.

An air of discontent is present among students, and in Selly Oak it is no exception. Our posters call upon these disaffected students to participate in the forthcoming Socialist Students conference, and join with us in fighting tuition fees, abusive landlords and penny-pinching university managements as a first step towards a socialist transformation of society.

A number of students have already been in contact after seeing our posters and have registered to attend the conference. The days of complacency are over. Students want to organise and we want to fight back!

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.

Please donate here.

All payments are made through a secure server.
