Financial appeal: Help the Socialist Party offer a real alternative

Ken Douglas Socialist Party national treasurer

We are appealing to all our members and supporters to donate to the Socialist Party's Congress 2014 fighting fund appeal.

Hundreds of Socialist Party members will be coming together from every corner of England and Wales to discuss the latest political developments in Britain and worldwide.

We will discuss events in Ukraine. The pictures of ordinary Ukrainians walking through the elected dictator's palace and taking pictures of the trappings of incredible luxury conjured images of the sans-culottes in the French revolution gaining entry to the palace of Versailles.

We'll discuss the fightback against austerity in Britain - we're preparing the biggest ever Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition challenge in the local elections in May - and Kshama Sawant's inspiring election victory in Seattle, and the preparations in South Africa for the new Workers And Socialist Party (WASP) to stand in the general election there.

We need the resources to meet all the challenges ahead and to maintain our ability to offer people an anti-austerity alternative.

For instance, the rollers on our press urgently need to be replaced at a cost of 1,600 in order to maintain the quality of the printed material we are producing.

That's why we are asking our members and supporters if they can make a financial sacrifice to help build the Socialist Party.

Branches are also raising funds to send their delegates to Congress. A supporter of the Socialist Party, Roger Ingham, has already made a fantastic donation of 500 to "help support delegates and visitors attendance costs to congress".

Can you do the same? Can you make a donation of 5, 10, 50 or 100 or more? Every donation, no matter how big or how small, makes a difference and we can promise that every penny will go towards building support for socialist ideas.
