Red flags line road for Ken Douglas

On the day of his funeral, Socialist Party members, neighbours and family lined the street of Socialist Party executive committee member Ken Douglas, who sadly died age 58.

Always campaigning, Ken's family secured free parking from the council on the day so more people could come.

Many wore red dresses, red ties, red masks, or carried red flags. We sang socialist songs together before a moving funeral Zoomed online.

You can read Ken's obituary 'Ken Douglas - a tireless and determined fighter for socialism' on the Socialist Party website.

Ken was our national treasurer and Socialist Party members have donated thousands of pounds for his memorial fund. This will be used to buy or do something that furthers the work of the Socialist Party in Ken's memory.

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.
