Tories Out! Corbyn can win with a socialist, anti-austerity programme

Meet Peter Taaffe, the author, and get a copy signed



At this meeting, Socialist Party general secretary Peter Taaffe will argue that a bold socialist stand can beat the Blairites and the Tories. There will also be speakers from campaigns and strikes!

The meeting will also launch an important new book, ‘From Militant to the Socialist Party’.

Thursday 25 May 7.30pm - book sales start at 7am (I suspect they mean 7PM!)

Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church, 235 Shaftesbury Avenue, WC2H 8EP

(nearest tubes: Holborn and Tottenham Court Road)

This general election campaign will see a choice for those opposed to Tory austerity. The battle within Labour rages over Tony Blair’s legacy and those seeking to continue it, and supporters of Corbyn who want to see working-class political representation.

In this battle, the influence of the Socialist Party, formerly Militant, has been a touchstone, showing how it is possible for working-class people to organise and win.

This meeting will launch a new book, From Militant to the Socialist Party, by Socialist Party general secretary Peter Taaffe. The book covers developments from the New Labour takeover to the first rumblings of the world economic crisis of 2007-08, and is the sequel to The Rise of Militant.

In the aftermath of the collapse of the Stalinist regimes, capitalism’s representatives proclaimed ‘the end of history’. But the struggles of workers and young people continued. From the Liverpool Dockers’ strike to the mass movements against the invasion of Iraq, From Militant to the Socialist Party charts the fightback, and highlights the lessons of these movements for today.

As Blair and New Labour implemented neo-liberal policies, the fight for working-class political representation is a fundamental battle charted out here.
