From The Socialist newspaper, 16 April 2014
May Day greetings with the Socialist
Over the last years we have had brilliant May Day displays in the Socialist.
Let's aim to repeat that success in 2014, the 40th anniversary of the founding of the CWI and later in the year the 50th anniversary of the first issue of our party's paper.
Our 'reporters' are actively involved in the struggles they report, from workplaces, communities, universities, schools and colleges.
We report the victories that show that if you fight back you can win - from construction workers' disputes in Britain, to Lonmin miners in South Africa.
And the Socialist doesn't just report workers' strikes and the anti-cuts movement, but puts forward a strategy to defeat the cuts and to fight for a socialist alternative.
Help the Socialist continue that work with a May Day greeting this year.
Greeting price guide: £500 for a whole page; £300 for a half-page; £170 quarter-page; £90 one-eighth; £50 one-sixteenth; £30 1/32; £20 small box. Other rates are available.

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.
