York: Non-binary and trans rights protest

On 19 September, 40 people protested for the legal recognition of non-binary people, and to end trans discrimination under the current Gender Recognition Act. Earlier this year, the government rejected a petition to legally recognise non-binary people. This decision has worsened the situation for non-binary people, who have been let down by cuts to health services, and by the education system.

This appalling situation we are in means we need change. We need to fight for the legal recognition of non-binary people and end the struggles they face. The only way to do that is through unity, solidarity and cooperation.

To win the resources needed to improve services for non-binary people, we need to take the wealth out of the hands of the big corporations and business in society, and instead run society under the democratic control of the working class, which could fund decent jobs, housing and services for all.

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.
