Below is the latest news from the Socialist Party's national site:

A socialist voice for working class people in Leicester!

Welcome to the Homepage of the Socialist Party, Leicester Branch.

Want to do something about New Labour's privatisation, cuts in public services, student tuition fees, cuts in benefits, and warmongering? Looking for an alternative? Then read on...

The Socialist Party campaigns, as part of working class communities, against all of the attacks of the Government and big business - from the privatisation of the NHS, to the ending of free university education, to the destruction of our environment. We fight for a new socialist society based on meeting the needs of all; instead of the current capitalist system that exists to provide profits for a few billionaire fat cats.

We also campaign alongside International Socialist Resistance (ISR), set up internationally at the end of last year, and has a branch in Leicester. email leicesterisr@yahoo.co.uk for more info. Look at our local archive page of isr activity, or check out the ISR national website
