Thank You Very Much!

Posted by EuanBenzie on 8th May 2011

Everyone at Aberdeen SSP would like to thank the 1,115 people who went out and voted for the SSP in the North East region on May 5th.

 The overall election results in the Scottish Parliament are the most dramatic since the parliament opened in 1999. Despite the SNP’s victory there will still be savage cuts in the public sector. The SSP will continue to fight against all public sector cuts and will put forward our socialist alternative. If you want to join the fightback with the SSP click here.

Meeting Today (30/03/11)

Posted by EuanBenzie on 30th March 2011

Hi all,

As usual, the meeting today will take place at 7.30pm in the bar of the Belmont Cinema. It’s a really important meeting, as we have our first hustings debate on the 12th of April. We’ll be going over the party platform, previous election broadcasts and the manifesto from the General Election of 2010 and talking about how we can apply this to our Holyrood election campaign. We have two branch members on the North East Regional List, so come out and support!

Thanks,

Aberdeen SSP

If you don’t know where that is leave a comment and we’ll get back to you!
