The Fight Is On

The fight is on. And it’s on the streets. With Parliament banned from sitting by the Prime Minister there’s only one way we can challenge the Tories propaganda blitz in the run-up to a general election. And that’s by getting on the streets.

Stop the Suicide Crisis

Lost amid the Westminster high drama this week was a stark reminder of the human consequences of austerity, with news that 2018 saw the highest rate of recorded suicides in almost 20 years. According to the report by the Office of National Statistics 6,507 suicides were registered in 2018, an increase of 11.8% on 2017 figures alone and the highest since 2002.
Suicide is extremely complex and multifactorial with rarely a single cause. However this recent and extremely abrupt reversal of a trend, which had seen suicide mortality rates from the late 1970s declining, needs urgent examination within the context of the assault on NHS mental health services as well as the chaos and instability that Tory austerity has unleashed on the lives of working people.
