Will Britain leave the EU on March 29th or not? Whilst MP’s seem paralysed by indecision working class people suffer poverty pay, further insecurity, falling living standards and declining public services.
The Scottish Socialist Party believes none of these concerns will disappear whether we are in the EU or not. History shows that it is only when working people stand up for themselves and resist employers’ attacks that meaningful change occurs.
Independence offers an escape hatch for working people in Scotland to avoid the failed free market philosophy of the UK and EU. We want an independent socialist Scotland, a modern democratic republic. And we believe the YES campaign needs to show how Scotland’s working class majority will be better off with independence.
We have organised this public meeting to explain what we have to say about Brexit, independence and the bosses attacks on wages, jobs and public services. Each speaker will explain why socialist ideas – of solidarity and collective action – are more relevant today than ever before.
