Rally for sacked RMT rep Declan

  (Click to enlarge)

Southampton's lockdown easing on 12 April was met with a loud and vibrant protest in solidarity with sacked RMT bus safety rep Declan Clune. Outrageously, he was dismissed for reporting a safety issue.

The rally, which included the Socialist Party, took place in front of Bluestar buses' city centre shop, was part of the RMT campaign to win a strike ballot in the garage to fight for Declan's reinstatement.

Declan is pictured with other victimised union reps, at the rally - RMT rep Gary Carney and National Education Union rep Kirstie Paton NEU along with Rob Williams, National Shop Stewards Network chair.

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.
