Give us the resources to fight Tory attacks
Ken Douglas, Socialist Party national treasurer
Can you make a donation to support the Socialist Party and our struggle for a socialist alternative? We have no rich funders - our backers are ordinary working class people who want change; who want to see a society where the wealth doesn't just flow to the super-rich but is used to give everyone a decent life.
That was the message that our members took into the general election. Ordinary workers, trade unionists, students, community campaigners, stood as part of Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) to say that austerity is a lie that just benefits the rich.
Even now those lying hypocrites, known as MPs, are busy debating giving themselves a £7,000 pay rise, while telling us we have to tighten our belts.
Like those candidates for the Labour leadership contest who think that the Labour election campaign didn't kow-tow enough to big business, they have no idea of the anger that is building against the profiteers and crooks that run the big companies and the banks and their representatives in parliament.
The Socialist argues a strategy to harness that anger. The working class is the most powerful force in society but we need trade union leaders who aren't afraid to build a political movement and a mass workers' party that can put an end to austerity.
The Tories don't just want to take us back to the 1930s, they want to take us back to the nineteenth century. But just as the conditions created by capitalism then led to the flourishing of socialist ideas and posed the question of building a new society, so it is inevitable that these ideas will again gain mass currency.
That's why we are asking for your support to help build a socialist alternative.
Can you donate £5, £10, £50 or £100 or more? We can guarantee that every penny will be used in the fight for socialism.
