Scottish Socialist Party leader Colin Fox has urged voters to reject "a dismal choice of cuts, sackings and war" as he launched the party's general election campaign.
Mr Fox - who will contest Edinburgh South West - said: "We will demand that tax dodging by the rich, which costs a massive Â£135 billion a year, is ended and troops are pulled out of Afghanistan," he said.
"In the choice between the greed of the rich and the needs of the people we stand for jobs and services and making the rich pay for the economic mess they have created."
The SSP is standing in:
Aberdeen North - Ewan Robertson
Cumbernauld, Kilsyth and Kirkintiloch East - Willie O'Neil
