From The Socialist newspaper, 29 May 2013

Boosting South West Wales paper sales

Swansea Socialist Party had one of its most successful paper sales in the week that the Socialist's editor Sarah Sachs-Eldridge visited South West Wales to discuss 'the year of the paper'.

We sold 77 copies of issue 765, mainly from three stalls held in the centre of Swansea.

This bumper sale was due to a combination of campaigning on an issue that resonates with the public and organising to do extra paper sales.

The campaign against the bedroom tax is winning overwhelming support on the streets of Swansea, not only from people affected by the tax or who have friends and relatives who are affected, but from many others who recognise the cruelty and unfairness of the tax.

We had a very successful joint meeting with the Llanelli and West Wales branch, which sold 71 copies that week.

There was a very useful discussion on the role of the Socialist and how we can make better use of it - and sell more. We'll be making use of those ideas to boost our sales.

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.
