Anti-academy strikes growing

The anti-academy strikes in east London are growing. St Bede's in Redbridge is joining St Michael's and St Bon's already on strike. National Education Union (NEU) organiser Glenn Kelly says:

"An excellent anti-academies meeting took place in Redbridge on 21 February. Parents and workers are fighting to stop local Catholic primary schools being swallowed up into a 'multi-academy trust' and are supporting NEU members on strike to oppose it. The local priest turned up to defend the proposals - he happens to be one of the people I'm negotiating with for the union. I put him right on a few things and let people know that the Catholic diocese's response to our 97% turnout in our members' strike ballot is to threaten to get a High Court injunction to rule it unlawful."


The issues raised above are among the many reasons why it is important to fight for socialists to be in London's City Hall. See a socialist manifesto for London and donate to the campaign for socialist policies in London's May elections, at: www.londonsocialistparty.org.uk

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.
