Build the Resistance

Last week’s election gave us all a lot of unpleasant surprises, not least the unleashing of a majority Tory government and the realisation that 13% of the voting population had opted for UKIP. Immediate moves to further restrict the right to strike, Austerity 2.1 and even harder cuts mean that we have to fight back even harder.

If you are as angry and concerned about the future as we are then help us do something about it. The Trades Club offers its resources and assistance in putting on political events & benefits as well as publicising them – we need you, our members, to come forward with suggestions and ideas to ensure the Trades Club plays its part in resisting austerity and presenting a positive socialist vision for the future.
