The Today program, on BBC Radio 4, examined the state of the NHS and its history. The pressure on the NHS and social services is unsustainable and untenable.

Richard Brown of Glasgow died after waiting five hours for an ambulance. Nearly six million people are waiting to start treatment in England, more than 300,000 of them have been waiting for more than a year.

In the program’s own words: “Health services, whether run by the government in Westminster, Edinburgh, Cardiff or Belfast, are struggling to cope.

But the program offered no solution to the current crisis. No pro-capitalist, pro-austerity or right-wing media politician has an alternative. We shouldn’t trust them with our NHS, our lives or our livelihood.

The Socialist Party has a clear strategy to defend the NHS. We say that unions should coordinate the action.

We need a public sector strike to defend our NHS and public services, and to fight for a pay rise of at least 15% for public sector workers. Private entrepreneurs should be kicked out of the NHS and pharmaceutical companies should be nationalized.

At Socialism 2021 we will have a ‘Can the NHS survive? »Discuss how we can build a campaign to defend it successfully.

The Socialist Party campaigns every week in the streets to save our NHS and for more – free education, town halls and a new mass party of the working class and youth.

To continue this vital socialist campaign work, we count on the continued financial donations of workers and young people. We need your donation.

For Socialism 2021, we have a target of £ 30,000 for the fundraising appeal. This fundraising allows us to fight for a socialist alternative to the profit-driven system that causes environmental chaos and human misery. Capitalism has nothing to offer other than class exploitation, insecurity, poverty, low wages, unemployment, war, hunger and disease.

We therefore urgently need your donations to finance the struggle for socialism. 20% of your donation will go to the financing of the international to which the Socialist Party is affiliated: the Committee for a Workers’ International (CIO).

Financing the international workers’ response

Donate to help fund IOC campaign work and the development of, so that our Marxist ideas can reach many more workers and young people.

For over 20 years, has provided detailed Marxist analysis and commentary on the world situation and national events. It has served as a political guide for workers and young people who seek an alternative to capitalist barbarism.

It reports firsthand the struggles of workers, youth, students, communities and oppressed minorities. But it does much more than that. He proposes a socialist program to advance the workers’ movement.

While building the forces of the IOC, we actively participate in all struggles of the working class, the youth, the poor and the oppressed, including the struggle to transform the unions into combative and democratic mass organizations of the working class. And create new mass political parties of the working class, the poor and the young, based on socialist policies, independent of the bosses and their political parties.
