Scottish Socialist Party Public Meeting
Brexit, Independence & the Case for Socialism

Speakers:
George Kerevan, former SNP MP and co-author of Catalonia Reborn
Colin Fox, former SSP MSP & SSP National Co-Spokesperson
Róisín McLaren, SSP National Co-Spokesperson
Gerry Carroll, People Before Profit, MLA for West Belfast

Will Britain leave the EU on March 29th or not? Will Theresa May get her Withdrawal Bill through Parliament or not? Whilst MP's seem paralysed by indecision working class people suffer poverty pay, further insecurity, falling living standards and declining public services.

The Scottish Socialist Party believes none of these concerns will disappear whether we are in the EU or not. History shows that it is only when working people stand up for themselves and resist employers attacks that meaningful change occurs.

Independence offers an escape hatch for working people in Scotland to avoid the failed free market philosophy of the UK and EU. We want an independent socialist Scotland, a modern democratic republic. And we believe the YES campaign needs to show how Scotland's working class majority will be better off with Independence.

We have organised this public meeting to explain what we have to say about Brexit, Independence and the bosses attacks on wages, jobs and public services. Each speakers will explain why socialist ideas - of solidarity and collective action - are more relevant today than ever been before.
