112. A socialist mayor for Liverpool

How can elected positions be used to advance the struggle of working class and young people against the bosses’ and the Tories’ Covid austerity?

The Socialist Party is part of the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition, organising to work with trade unionists and socialists to offer a programme that builds on Corbyn’s anti-austerity stand at the ballot box on 6 May.

Liverpool offers rich lessons of how elected representatives, political organisations and trade unions can link up in struggle against Tory attacks.

This episode of Socialism looks at the fight for a socialist mayor in Liverpool
