The Socialist sales drive - how can you help?

Chris Newby, the Socialist campaign organiser

The Socialist is invaluable in the struggle against austerity. Whether it is reporting on the actions of workers to defend jobs and improve pay and conditions or reporting campaigns to defend public services such as the NHS.

But we don't just report these events, we also provide a strategy that can defeat these attacks. And the Socialist gives an analysis of the political earthquakes such as Brexit, Trump and the continuing economic crisis. The Socialist is needed now more than ever.

The sales drive that we launched to mark the 1000th issue smashed through the target of 1,000 extra sales. As a result of this campaign, new regular weekly sales of the Socialist have been established such as the railway station sales at Moor Street and New Street in Birmingham, the sale at the city council offices in Leeds and the sale at Newham University Hospital in east London.

We want to build on the success of this campaign by launching a new sales drive for issue 1011 at the end of September. The target for this drive will be to sell an extra 500 copies of this issue.

Socialist Party branches across England and Wales are involved in a tremendous amount of campaigning and by the end of September will be heavily involved at freshers fairs at many universities. How many copies of the Socialist can you sell at your local freshers fair? Can you keep your regular campaign stall going longer? Is there a rail or bus station or workplace you can sell at?

All new extra sales help us sustain a socialist paper which is an independent voice for the working class.
