Yemen solidarity

Recently, around 100 workers demonstrated in front of the parliament buildings in Sana'a, the capital of war-torn Yemen. They were demanding unpaid wages and seeking justice for their murdered colleagues.

Their original employers (the multinational oil corporation Total and its subcontractor, the security company G4S), robbed over 200 security guard workers of more than one year's wages, after the companies abandoned most of their economic activities in Yemen in 2015.

Photographs of the protest and also a copy of a resolution in support of the Yemeni workers adopted by the national conference of TUSC (Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition), which met in London on 28 January, are on socialistworld.net

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.
