About the SSP: The Scottish Socialist Party (SSP) is a left-wing Scottish political party. Positioning itself significantly to the left of Scotland’s centre-left parties, the SSP campaigns on a socialist economic platform and for Scottish independence.
It operates through a branch based structure with additional networks for identity or campaigning groups.
Whilst following the 2003 elections to the Scottish Parliament, it had six Members of the Scottish Parliament (MSPs) and two local councillors, although its main focus is on grassroots community campaigns, the SSP lost all its seats in the Scottish Parliament in the 2007 election, and retained one local councillor.
The SSP played a leading role in the 2014 Independence Referendum, campaigning for our unique vision of an Independent Socialist Scotland. The party has seen an immense expansion in it’s size as a result, with thousands of new people applying to join, and new branches being established the length and breadth of Scotland.
The SSP is Scotland’s socialist party. Join today and help us fight to build a fairer and more just Scotland!
