RCT Socialist Update no. 10
With the Welsh Assembly elections looming it is clear that whichever of the main parties form a government or coalition government that huge cuts are on the cards after May 5th, such is the nature of all the main parties in Wales, they all agree that ordinary people should pay the price for the economic crisis whilst handing £billions over to the banks. That is why this Saturday (!6th April) we will be attending the Wales Conference against cuts organised by the National Shop Stewards Network. Members of the Socialist Party in RCT have been at the forefront of building RCT Against the Cuts and we hope that the conference on Saturday will help to unite RCT Against the Cuts with other anti-cuts groups around Wales. Come along and have your say and get involved with the Fightback. Saturday April 16th, Temple of Peace, Cathays Park, Cardiff.
Also the Socialist Party is currently involved in the election campaign for the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition, who are standing in opposition to all cuts in the Welsh Assembly elections and we are out campaign regularly with street stalls during the day and door to door canvassing during the evenings and weekends. If you want to get involved in the election campaign to get anti-cuts candidates into the Welsh Assembly then get in touch.
It might be a busy week but we are still holding the weekly branch meeting, which is more important than ever to continue to co-ordinate our campaigning work. This week in light of recent demonstrations over the last few months we will be discussing the role the police play and whether we have political policing and the wider aspect of whether the state is neutral or if it sides against working class people. You can read more about the subject here http://www.socialistparty.org.uk/pamphlets/state/
Come along to the meeting. 7.30pm Wednesday 13th in the Otley Arms, Treforest
