The Socialist Party has organised this weekend around important issues facing working people today. Governments across the globe have intervened to bail out banks and big business. These bail outs have been at the cost of workers’ wages, jobs and public services such as health and education. This weekend will discuss why there is an economic crisis and is there an alternative to the cuts

The event will also deal with other important issues like the huge threat posed to the planet by climate change and the ongoing crisis in the Catholic Church as a result of the child abuse scandals.

We think anyone concerned about the policies being imposed and where they will lead, or what passes for politics in this country should attend this event.

Stop the destruction of the Khimkinskii forest – Stop brutal attacks against socialists and environmental activists

Socialists and environmental activists in Russia are campaigning against the construction of a road through the Khimkinskii forest, which is one of the major greenbelt forests near Moscow. Following recent brutal attacks against CWI members in Moscow on 7 August and also against an environmentalist activists’ camp, the CWI in Russia calls on socialists, trade unionists and environmental activists worldwide to take protest action against Vinci Construction. This French based multi-national company is currently the main contractor on this 43 kilometer stretch of the proposed new Moscow St Petersburg highway, a contract worth 1 billion euros.

Firefighters say ‘Hands off our pensions!’

ONLY A deluded fool would expect benevolence from New Labour. The country’s firefighters are already familiar with the lengths that New Labour ministers will go to, in order to attack their trade union and bleed the workers under the guise of modernisation. 

But FBU members are shocked and angered at the latest move by the Department of Communities and Local Government (CLG) to rob sick and injured firefighters of their pensions.

Young people demand – FREE EDUCATION FOR ALL

Thousands of secondary school students awaited A-level and GCSE results anxiously last month. Again it was another record-breaking year for Northern Ireland students who again improved on the previous years results. But even pupils who have achieved top grades will be forced to compete for the miniscule amount of university places on offer. This, and the fact that the education budget faces cuts of 25% this year, leaves tens of thousands of young people in the North without any access to education or a decent job.
