Socialist Party Scotland to be launched

The Scottish section of the Committee for a Workers' International - the International Socialists - is changing its name to Socialist Party Scotland.

The new organisation will be launched at a rally in Glasgow on Thursday 10 June. Speaking at the rally will be Joe Higgins, the Socialist Party Ireland MEP and Hannah Sell of the Socialist Party in England and Wales, Brian Smith the secretary of Glasgow Unison and Graeme McCiver the national secretary of Solidarity, among others.

We have chosen this new name because we believe that it allows us to have a clearer banner that will help attract new young people and workers to the ranks of the CWI. It also has the distinct advantage of making a direct link with our sister parties in England, Wales and Ireland who are also known as Socialist Party.

We will continue to work to build Solidarity - Scotland's Socialist Movement, alongside Tommy Sheridan and help to develop TUSC as a step to the building of a new mass workers' party.

Socialist Party Scotland Rally

Thursday 10 June 7.30pm

Thistle Hotel, Cambridge Street, Glasgow

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.

Please donate here.

All payments are made through a secure server.
