Huddersfield Socialist Party

The Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) election campaign in Huddersfield has exceeded all our expectations. Public and doorstep support has been amazing.

People see the link between the planned local hospital closure and council cuts. In Ashbrow, there is a huge groundswell of discontent about the local cuts and councillor inaction.

Support is swinging to TUSC candidate Nicola Jackson who has lived in the area all her life and has managed to canvass most of the ward.

Likewise Mike Forster has spoken in all five mosques in his area and local Labour Party members have secretly been pledging and canvassing support. In both areas, the TUSC vote will be much bigger than originally expected and will remind Blairite Labour quite forcefully they can no longer take support for granted.

The huge base of support built in both areas will stand TUSC in good stead as the resistance to cuts to public services grows.

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.
