Chris Newby, The Socialist national sales organiser
The Socialist Party is launching an e-reader version of the Socialist newspaper.
In this age of capitalist crisis and austerity, we want as many people as possible to have access to the clear analysis in the Socialist, the socialist programme we put forward, and how we can build the struggle for a socialist alternative.
We regularly report on the struggles of workers and campaigners in Britain and around the world - by people who are actively involved in the struggles, whether it's the battle of the Birmingham care workers or the mass strike movement in Sudan. Where else can you get this sort of coverage and analysis?
And the Socialist doesn't just describe what's wrong with capitalism. It provides a clear strategy for how the working class can get rid of capitalism and replace it with a socialist society. So it is vital we get the Socialist into the hands of as many people as possible.
New subscribers can take out an e-subscription at £2.50 a month. We are asking existing subscribers of the Socialist who want to read it on their e-reader to continue their subscription at the current rate as a solidarity price.
It is also vital all our members and supporters still take supplies of the Socialist to sell on local activity, or to colleagues, friends, neighbours or classmates.
Socialist Party members can get supplies of the Socialist from their local meetings.
If you are not able to get to a meeting, let us know - we will still post the Socialist so you can help increase our sales and reach.

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.
