Panama papers, steel crisis, junior doctors’ contract, austerity…
Cameron resign now!
Take the wealth off the 1%
The Tories were already hated before the Panama Papers revelations. That they are a party of the rich and for the rich is constantly confirmed and re-confirmed.
Their vicious austerity measures have brought misery to millions through the cuts to benefits, job cuts, public service cuts, student fee hikes, bedroom tax and more.
And the Tories want to continue to slash government expenditure to further their aim of reducing corporation tax for big business and income tax for the rich.
Watching the movement in Iceland that brought down the prime minister there has whetted our appetite to remove this hated government.
Following Cameron’s admission that he did benefit from his father’s tax haven hoards, the demand for him to resign has rung out. Of the first 5,000 people who voted in a Mirror online poll, 95% want Cameron to resign.
This is a weak divided government that can be defeated. The resignation by IDS gave us a glimpse of this. We need to build a powerful movement that can force the government to call a general election.
National action needed
Never were bold action and socialist ideas more needed. We are facing the fight of our lives. The Socialist Party calls on the anti-austerity forces around Jeremy Corbyn and within the trade union leaderships to organise and build for a massive national demo.
The trade unions have funded a national demo on Saturday 16 April. They should now turn this into the launch of a massive national campaign to demand the Tories Out!
A demo should be linked to coordinating strike action of all those workers with ongoing disputes as a step towards a 24-hour general strike.
The background is crisis-ridden capitalism, a system so unequal that the richest 1% of the world’s population own more wealth than all the rest of us combined. War, poverty, unemployment and austerity blight the lives of billions.
Increasing numbers of people are searching for an alternative. A YouGov poll revealed that more people in Britain have a favourable view of socialism than of capitalism. 47% of people surveyed in the US said they would be willing to vote for a socialist for president.
Socialist societies would be able, through planning the use of the world’s enormous wealth and resources, to provide decent jobs, homes and services for everyone.
The Socialist Party fights for:
- Tax the rich! Reverse the job cuts at HM Revenue and Customs – Close tax loopholes and enforce collection of avoided taxes. Increase taxes on the super-rich and big business
- End all cuts and austerity
- Nationalise the banks and the major corporations under democratic workers’ control and management – with compensation only on the basis of proven need
- For democratic public ownership of our NHS, steel, railways, public services, utilities and banks
- Through public ownership of the commanding heights of the economy, together we can build a democratic socialist society run in the interests of the millions not the billionaires
