Poverty in Wales must be tackled urgently if the high number of suicides in deprived areas is to be lowered, according to Samaritans Cymru. It said suicide rates were up to three times higher in deprived neighbourhoods compared with affluent areas. Almost a quarter of the Welsh population - some 23% - live in poverty.

The Socialist Party is the party of the working class, the party of emancipation and is made up of men and women who scorn to compromise with their oppressors; who want no votes that can be bought and no support under any false pretense whatsoever. It is not begging for votes, nor asking votes, nor bargaining for votes. It is not in the vote market. It wants votes but only of those who want it-those who recognise is as their party, and come to it of their own free will. To be sure we want all the votes we can get but only as a means of developing the political power of the working class in the struggle for industrial freedom, and not that we may revel in the spoils of office.
The Socialist Party is the party of the workers, organised to express in political terms their determination to break their chains and rise to the dignity of free men and women. The Socialist Party stands squarely upon its socialist principles and relies wholly upon the education of the working class. The workers themselves must take the initiative in uniting their forces for effective political action; leaders will never do it for them. They must no longer suffer themselves to be deceived by the specious arguments of their betrayers. The workers must unite and develop their political power to conquer and abolish the capitalist political state and clear the way for industrial and social democracy.
