Campaigning for socialism at Oxford Brookes Uni

  (Click to enlarge)

Socialist Party members held a stall at the Oxford Brookes freshers fair on Monday, raising the need for a new, fighting Socialist Students society on campus.

We made contact with about twenty students and had wide-ranging discussions on issues such as free education, the fight against racism, climate change, and the oppressive role of gender under capitalism.

Many students said that they had become interested in socialist ideas through Jeremy Corbyn, but criticised his capitulation to the Labour right following his leadership victory.

One student was outraged at the plans to increase national insurance contributions, following a period when UK billionaires have increased their wealth by 35%.

Another student told us that he was already planning to start a new socialist society at Oxford Brookes, but was looking forward to instead joining Socialist Students, as an activist group with links to campuses across the country.

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.
