On this week’s episode: party co-spokesperson, Sandra Webster on her experiences of being a carer in Tory-ruled Scotland, me on the patriotic fracking nonsense of the Labour Party, Dunfermline branch chair Lewis Akers on being a young party activist and Glasgow South’s Tommy Ball with this week’s political round up.
A post by Richie Venton – the SSP’s national workplace organiser.
The contrast could not be starker. As the people of Greece give a resounding NO! to austerity, the councillors of Scotland are poised to vote YES to another bout of municipal butchery.
At a public meeting on Tuesday evening – the Scottish Socialist Party’s co-spokesperson, Colin Fox reports about his experience visiting Athens at the time of the radical left party Syriza’s historic victory in the Greek general elections. He also speaks about what he believes is the future for Europe and Scotland given this context.
The subsequent discussion was chaired by SSP co-spokesperson Sandra Webster, and the closing remarks about fighting cuts at home were made by West of Scotland regional organiser Richie Venton.
A special one-off episode: on the night that Syriza, the radical anti-capitalist party in Greece win at the polls, SSP activist Tommy Ball explains the implications this will have across Europe and Colin Fox reports from the celebrations on the ground in Athens!
