An alternative to the cuts
Despite claims to be a 'legitimate' party the BNP is still a hate-filled, racist organisation. The BNP blames minorities for the destruction of our public services, dividing working-class people on lines of race, religion or colour.
But these divisions are a dead end for those who want to fight cuts and defend the living standards of their communities.
Where BNP candidates have been elected to council positions they've done nothing to defend jobs or services, including voting for cuts. The BNP and other racist organisations set worker against worker, benefiting nobody but those who gain from keeping us weak.
In the face of the onslaught on our living standards, services and communities, a united response from working class people is required. A movement capable of defeating the cuts and defending our services requires the greatest possible unity of workers and the communities they serve. There is no room for the divisive idea that some cuts are necessary.
In TUSC we aim to help build such a movement. If we can secure representation in the Welsh Assembly, we will use that platform to fight all cuts.
But regardless of which party is in the leadership of the Assembly after the elections on 5 May, we will continue to build in our trade unions and in our communities a campaign to oppose every cut; a campaign in which all workers can unite.
