Young Socialists march in London

"You can't trust Starmer's Labour Party - we need a new mass workers' party". Young members of the Socialist Party in London led a loud and colourful contingent at the People's Assembly demo on Saturday 26 June.

We called for jobs and homes for young people, industrial action for a 15% rise in the NHS, and a new party of the working class to draw all the struggles together. Young people on the protest left their contact details with the Socialist Party, and some joined our end-of-protest discussion in St James's Park.

Called on a myriad of issues, the central London march lacked a unifying slogan and next steps. Placards and rally speakers demanding a 'new normal' and 'Tories out' left mostly open what is needed and how to win it.

Unfortunately, this, and a lack of union mobilisation, led to a modest turnout for a national event - perhaps a few thousand. This underlines the point we took part to make.

Workers and young people need fighting trade union leaderships, and clear demands for a working-class political alternative. Our members campaigned energetically for those ideas on the march. If you agree and want to help - join the Socialist Party.

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.

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 donate to our Fighting Fund.
