No2EU candidates in Scotland will launch their manifesto for this month’s European elections in Glasgow tomorrow.
Six candidates in Scotland will represent the three organisations fronting the No2EU alliance: the RMT trade union, the Communist Party and the Socialist Party.
Calling for withdrawal from the EU, John Foster of the Communist Party said: “We argued in 2009 that EU austerity policies would lead to deeper crisis and that the EU’s Lisbon Treaty would be used to undermine democracy at national level.
“Since then we have seen national governments replaced, collective bargaining rights undermined and austerity programmes enforced in Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Spain, Hungary, Ireland and Portugal.
“Unemployment now stands at 12 per cent across the EU and there is no end to the crisis.”
Gail Morrow of the Socialist Party condemned Ukip as a “millionaires’ party that exploits racism.”
She said: “By contrast No2EU supports genuine democracy that could give working people powers to advance Left and socialist policies.”
