We need to fight to protect the welfare state – no to benefit cuts

This is an appopriate video for Remembrance Day, as those who fought in the Second World War demanded a “land fit for heroes”. This resulted in the creation of the welfare state, the NHS and the nationalisation of some major industries. Today, all these gains are being taken away from us. We need to fight to defend benefits – the above video is of the Socialist Party stall I was on, campaigning against cuts in benefits for the disabled, the unemployed and people on low incomes.

We need to build a mass, left-wing alternative to austerity. The only party arguing against cuts to working-class people is TUSC, the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition, in which the Socialist Party is playing a leading role.
