Socialist Worker

Tory scum

Pay cuts for millions | Public services slashed | Thousands of disabled people lose £25 a week

Issue No. 2208

Not a day passes without the Tories coming up with new plans to batter workers and the poor.

They are tearing into benefits and attacking the most vulnerable. But they are also targeting every worker, whether through pay freezes, tax rises, a jobs massacre or public service cuts.

The assaults on the unemployed will be used in an attempt to discipline the employed workforce.

David Cameron has written to public sector workers asking them to come up with ideas for saving money. He wants them to cut their own throats.

Instead of capitulation, it’s time for resistance. Just as in Greece, France, Spain and Italy we need mass demonstrations and strikes.

The protests on budget day initiated by the Right to Work campaign and others showed the potential for much broader resistance.

Start building now for the demonstration at the Tory party conference on 3 October in Birmingham.

Pass a motion supporting it in your union branch or campaign group, and get transport arranged. Let’s bring the anger over the cuts and the war in Afghanistan directly to the Tories.

Protest at Conservative Party conference on Sunday 3 October, Birmingham. Called by the Right to Work campaign
