Youth Section of WRP
Young Socialists is the youth section of the Workers Revolutionary Party. It organises young people in the fight against capitalism to go forward to Socialism.
Young Socialist is also the weekly colour newspaper of the YS.
This week's editorial (13.08.11) of the YS is:
Government declares war on youth! Coalition out now!
HUGE sentences are being dished out to young people in the courts throughout last week as the government and the state vent their spleen against the youth that dared to rise up against their system.
We can see the same viciousness against the Libyan people, the Afghans, the Iraqis – bomb them into submission to imperialism!
No one should be confused – this is class war by the capitalist class against anyone who dares to challenge their rule and their interests.
The wars they are fighting abroad to grab oil is being imported here into the UK, as the capitalist system begins to collapse.
Stock markets are crashing, major companies are heading for bankruptcy and the government is fighting for the bosses and the bankers with all its life.
The working class and the youth are the ‘enemy.’
Anyone who dares to challenge the rule of British capitalism is ‘the enemy’. But British capitalism offers no future to young people at all.
It offers them mass unemployment, working for nothing, huge fees and massive debts if you go to university, no social housing, the smashing up of the NHS and an end to all benefits.
In other words, it offers future generations a life of hardship and poverty with nothing to look forward to.
There is nearly a million young people without a job. No wonder they are frustrated as they are kicked around from pillar to post, going for jobs where hundreds turn up.
EMA has been cut leaving working class youth no means to continue with their further education.
This government is dumping young people, with no concern as it is a bosses’ and bankers’ government.
It certainly does not have the same standards for itself. Hundreds of MPs ‘stole’ expenses – not a crate of water or a piece of chewing gum but hundreds of thousands of pounds used for second homes, ‘duck’ houses, buying top-of-range TVs, decorating their homes – all of which came out of our taxes.
Were they given harsh sentences? No! They were asked to pay some of it back and no charges brought except for a few that received a few month’s jail.
Thousands of people were killed as a result of the policy of the Blair government to attack Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein in order to grab Libya’s oil.
It has been proved this was an illegal war –– has Blair or any of his ministers been indicted for war crimes! No, but if you were involved in ‘any way’ in creating a fire during the riots, you will get a life sentence – for life!
Obviously no-one supports people getting hurt during these riots but this government and its system are hurting more people with the closure of hospitals, care homes, putting up the price of meals-on-wheels to over £6 a meal and more.
This is a class system and class justice.
The only way forward for the working class and youth is to bring this hated system down. It means the working class taking strike action, supporting the youth, and kicking this coalition government out.
Only by establishing a workers government and Socialism will young people have a future to look forward to.
Organise a mass turn-out for our lobby of TUC to demand the unions act now! (details on page 3)
