For a Socialist Europe

The Socialist Party is fighting for

  • For solidarity of the European working class.
  • Oppose the bosses' European Union.
  • No to the European Constitution.
  • No to the euro.
  • For a socialist Europe.

Exclusive club

The European Union (EU) is an exclusive club run in the interests of the EU's ruling classes – a bosses' Europe.

All the treaties, agreements and summits promote a big-business agenda: the 'liberalisation' of trade, cuts in the welfare state, and racist immigration laws.

Big business in the EU forms powerful lobbies such as the "European Round Table of Industrialists".

In reality these lobbies dictate EU policy, which puts pressure on for privatisation and which attacks systematically the rights and conditions of public sector workers.


Expansion 

The recent expansion of the EU is no different – its aim was never to improve living standards for workers in Eastern Europe but was to increase the ‘prestige’ and profits of the EU ruling classes.

To be allowed to join the EU, countries like Poland and the Czech Republic have had to ‘open up’ their economies to Western multinationals and slash public spending on social security and benefits.


Major attacks 

Workers across Europe are currently facing major attacks on their living standards, particularly on their pension rights.

In response there have been massive movements, including widespread strike action.

The neo-liberal cuts that workers in France, Germany and other countries are currently attempting to derail are very similar to the attacks that Thatcher and now Blair inflicted on workers here.

We stand in solidarity with the struggles of workers across Europe – their victory can only help us in our struggle against cuts and privatisation.

At the same time we fight for a democratic, socialist Europe where the needs of working people come before the ruthless drive for profits by the multinational corporations.

An international movement of working-class people could ensure that a continent could be built free from wage slavery, racism and discrimination - a socialist Europe based on human solidarity.
