Edinburgh South-West Candidate Colin Fox spoke to the BBC about what the SSP stands for a few days ago, highlighting the fight against cuts, war and corruption in parliament. You can find the a recording of the interview by clicking here.
The Scottish Socialist Party will join Scottish people of all political colours this Saturday in questioning the logic of spending £100 billion on useless nuclear weapons while services, jobs and pay are cut up and down the country.
It is time to stand up and question the madness of officials who today can close down essential frontline services like Colinton Mains Community Centre in Edinburgh (host to the vital Sure Start program for toddlers) in order to save a measly £3,000. And then tomorrow with a straight face turn around and spend £100,000,000,000 on a vanity project. To put this all into perspective, the cost of keeping Colinton Mains Community centre open is 0.00000003% (three hundred millionths of a percent) the cost of this unnecessary militarism. Join us tomorrow underneath the SSP banners and say that enough is enough.

Edinburgh South joined SSP members from across Scotland to march through Edinburgh against the NATO meeting this Saturday (14th November). The march brought together those against the War in Afghanistan — now encompassing 71% of the population — and Trident — opposed by a majority of the Scottish people, a majority of Scottish MPs, and the Scottish parliament.
