A world to win - give us the resources!

Ken Douglas, Socialist Party national treasurer

Members of the Socialist Party throughout England and Wales will be attending our upcoming congress to discuss political developments both in Britain and across the world.

It's a critical time to do so. The Tories are under pressure over the crisis in the health service. Trump's election has provoked mass protests among workers and young people worldwide. Railworkers have won significant victories on the Tube and rejected the rotten Southern Rail deal.

Corrupt, capitalist politicians are using austerity to further enrich themselves and their big business backers. Trump isn't even bothering with politicians; he's just packed his cabinet with the richest business tycoons in the US.

That's why we link the fight against cuts to building a socialist movement. Our programme sets out the way forward for the working class - and we show in practice how we can win.

But it's not enough to have the correct ideas, we need resources. Our fighting fund has recently helped pay for a more modern and more efficient press - essential for the continued production of the thousands of leaflets, posters and pamphlets that ensure our ideas and programme are read on every protest, demo or strike.

Eight super-rich individuals now own more wealth than half the world's population. But it is the billions who have the power to get rid of the rich for good. This is the lesson that resonates down through the 100 years since the Russian revolution when the working class, with the support of the peasants, overthrew the mighty Tsar and then fought off the 21 armies of the world powers which tried to kill off the nascent workers' state.

That's why we will be having an appeal at our congress, asking our members and supporters if they can make a financial sacrifice to help build the Socialist Party. Can you make a donation of five, ten, 50, 100, or more? We can promise you that every penny will be spent on our struggle to change the world.
