Socialist students stall at Hull University freshers fair, 17.9.18, photo by Matt Whale (Click to enlarge)

Socialist students in Hull held a campaign booth on the first day of the University of Hull student fair on September 17, calling for the expulsion of Tories and for socialist policies. 40 students have registered.

When we first met, “what is socialism? 12 people attended with others indicating that they would participate in future activities.

A meeting on Marxist economics was arranged for the following week with plans for campaign activity to follow.

Ten copies of the Socialist Student Magazine “Megaphone” were sold with students delighted to see Socialists campaigning at the University of Hull.

Financial appeal

The coronavirus crisis has exposed the class character of society in many ways. This clearly shows to many that it is the working class that makes society run, not the CEOs of big companies.

The results of austerity have been shown graphically as utilities struggle to cope with the crisis.

  • The material of the Socialist Party is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report workers fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels etc.
  • We must be prepared for the stormy events to come and the need to arm the labor movements with a socialist program – a program that puts the health and needs of mankind before the profits of the few.

Inevitably, during the crisis, we were not able to sell the socialist and raise funds as we normally would.

We therefore urge all our viewers to donate to our Fight Fund.
