SWP - Where next for the left?

249 7.30pm Thu 21 May 2015

With Charlie Kimber, SWP; Angela McCormick, TUSC candidate Glasgow North; and Glasgow Homeless Caseworker strikers

About this event

Just a week after the General Election revolt is in the air. Over 4000 demonstrated in Bristol. Nearly 400 came to Manchester's Peoples Assembly organising meeting. And major J20 demos are planned for Glasgow, London and Cardiff. As Labour goes into meltdown we have to build resistance to coming Tory welfare cuts and restrictions on unions' rights to organise. The election of 56 SNP MPs shows there is no mandate for Tory Rule in Scotland, or anywhere in the UK. The SNP government and SNP/ Labour councils should stop implementing Tory cuts now. Come along to our public meeting and discuss how we can build the strikes and protests and unite the left. With Charlie Kimber, SWP; Angela McCormick, TUSC candidate Glasgow North; and Glasgow Homeless Caseworker strikers
