The election of a Tory government makes it even more important to stand together in opposition to the attacks from the bosses, who bail out the banks and want to make us pay the price. Tyne and Wear Left Unity was launched less than a year ago, because we know that those angry with capitalism in the northeast could not see an alternative, could not hear a socialist response. Our launch statement follows if you agree with it, join us: We are a coalition of individuals, activists and groups who oppose the present economic system that causes poverty, war, racism, unemployment, destruction of the environment, and a lot more. We believe in working for a society based on human need not private profit. Together we are stronger, we can coordinate our actions, share our knowledge and experiences, learn from discussion, debate and even disagreement to make our fight against capitalism even stronger, our voice louder and our supporters greater.

We won’t pay for the boss’s crisis – Join us!
