"Thank you for your articles - the voice of sanity in all this chaos" writes an anonymous donor, sending the Socialist Party £20 after reading the Socialist newspaper.

Our socialist newspaper has appeared without fail throughout the pandemic, thousands of copies printed and distributed through England and Wales each week. Your donations continue to fund the voice of sanity - the voice of socialism - in these difficult times.

As we approach the end of our six-month campaign, we have just one week to raise £3,444, to help fund our paper and also all our campaigning work on the streets, among the youth and the trade unions. Every penny and every pound will count.

Thanks goes to Helen Hayes, a regular reader of the Socialist in Liverpool and a long-standing supporter, and to Neil Adams in Reading. Both gave £100 to our Fighting Fund.

A raffle in east London has brought in £25, Naomi in Hackney sent us £20 from a tax credit refund, and a big thanks to all the donations that brought in £1,890 last week.

Make this a record year for our fundraising. Make a donation today.

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 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.
  • 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 Fighting Fund.

Please donate here.

All payments are made through a secure server.
