We are appealing to all our members and supporters to help us make this year as big a success for the fighting fund as possible.
While Theresa May is fighting for her political life, forced to postpone the Brexit vote, the Gilets Jaunes in France are successfully pushing back against austerity.
It shows that mass action works, something that is not lost on workers and young people here who are signing our campaign petitions. We too need mass demonstrations to help drive out the Tories.
Socialist Party members are out campaigning in the town centres demanding that Jeremy Corbyn and the trade union leaders call demonstrations and mobilise the millions of workers in the trade union and labour movement to help finish May off and get rid of the Tories and Tory austerity.
At the same time our members are working tirelessly, collecting donations to make sure we start 2019 with the finances to get our message out to as wide an audience as possible.
Can you help? Every donation will help support the fight against all cuts and for a socialist alternative to austerity and Tory Brexit.

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.
