Anti-academy strikes kick off in Redbridge

St Bede's

The snow didn't stop staff, parents, children and supporters turning out on the picket line. St Bede's in Redbridge took their first day of strike action against the school becoming a privatised academy.

After the picket line, parents and teachers went for a rally. Other east London schools striking against academisation too. National Education Union (NEU) organiser Glenn Kelly said: "Workers hearts were lifted to see homemade banners done by children."

And Jeremy Corbyn sent the strikers a message of support. Next they're planning a protest march in the area.

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.
