Putting socialism on the map in Chichester

Christine Archer, Chichester Socialist Party

A new Socialist Party group has started in Chichester, which is, as anyone who knows the city would understand, a challenge to say the least! However, although starting with just four women, real progress is being made, and there is a lot of interest.

The group has set up a stall in the city centre on a Tuesday afternoon on a regular basis, attracting interest from socialist-minded people, some returning more than once to chat with us.

Many from all generations are very concerned about what is happening in this country run by this corrupt and asset-stripping Tory government. The younger generations are very worried about their future, and the middle age group have concerns about their children's future, as well as their own and often their elderly parents too!

The over-70 age group are perhaps a bit more set in their political views but have concerns about the future of the NHS and social care.

A lot of interest has come from Labour voters who are desperately worried about the Labour right-wing takeover of the party, and feel they need to stay true to their socialist values.

These people are searching for a new political party which can closely replicate the Jeremy Corbyn-era of Labour.

This is where we can pick up new members for the future, especially with furlough coming to an end and the country going into an even bigger slump. One man has already joined and will add further to the group.

Anybody interested in coming to chat or join us more permanently will be given a warm welcome. We are outside one of the closed shops near to the Cross in Chichester City Centre from 1-3pm on a Tuesday. At the current time we are campaigning for higher NHS wages and against privatisation, and on help for the people of Afghanistan. Future campaigns will be for social care and housing, reflecting very current social issues.

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.

Please donate here.
