'One hundred percent anti-austerity' - Scottish TUSC media launch
The Scottish Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition held its election manifesto launch on Friday - and got some decent coverage too.
BBC Scotland TV cameras filmed candidates campaigning in Glasgow (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1axZ5-ZWAU ), highlighting TUSC's Â£10 an hour minimum wage policy but also our stand for the public ownership of the banks, utility companies and major industries such as oil.
The need for public ownership of the major sections of the economy was also the theme of a more extensive interview with Scottish TUSC spokesperson Philip Stott on BBC Radio Scotland's Newsdrive programme (listen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uW1tpbbzlS0 ) where TUSC's position in the election as the '100% anti-austerity, 100% socialist' alternative got through.
There are ten Scottish TUSC candidates standing on May 7th. Check out their contact details on the TUSC Election 2015 website at http://tusc2015.com/tuscs-general-election-challenge/
