Pakistan flood disaster: Workers' solidarity appeal

THE FOLLOWING financial appeal has been circulated internationally by CWI socialists in Pakistan.

"We urge all of our brothers, sisters and comrades in the international trade union movement to show their solidarity and support for the people affected by the devastating flood in our country, especially trade union members, workers and peasants.

We urgently need resources to provide relief for our affected brothers and sisters. Among the millions hit by the flooding, more than 200 members of the TURCP and Progressive Workers' Federation and their families have been affected. Their houses, crops and everything else have been wiped out. We urgently need your help, solidarity and support for these people. We request that all trade unions, union branches and workers support our campaign. Every penny you donate will be accounted for and will reach the affected people.

Syed Fazalabbas - secretary of Progressive Workers' Federation (PWF), Malik Muhammad Shabir - president PWF, Khalid Bhatti - finance secretary PWF and national organiser of TURCP."

Coronavirus crisis - Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

  • The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
  • Our 'fighting coronavirus workers' charter', outlines a programme to combat the virus and protect workers' living conditions.
  • When the health crisis subsides, we must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our special coronavirus appeal.
