Fighting Fund target smashed!

But we still need more campaign funds

Congratulations to all Socialist Party members and supporters for making sure that we have already broken through the fighting fund target for this campaign quarter.

But we can't afford to let up. We urge everyone to continue their fundraising efforts.

There has been no let-up in the government and bosses attacks on our living standards and democratic rights, but workers have shown that they're prepared to stand up and fight.

The pages of the Socialist are full of examples of the important part that our members play in supporting workers in struggle, from building a democratic fighting left within Unison, to campaigning against parking charges at University Hospital, Coventry.

Moreover, Socialist Party branches have already been holding regular campaign stalls on a host of local, national and international issues in many towns and cities across England and Wales.

We need the resources to get our socialist message out as widely as possible. We have already produced 1,000's of Socialist Party leaflets and we are also producing hundreds of posters and placards for the various protests and demos across England and Wales for the day of action on NHS pay on 3 July. All this costs money.

Can your branch organise extra campaign stalls in the next week? If you can't manage a campaign stall, can you do a sale outside a workplace or a transport hub?

Rush any money that you raise into the Socialist Party offices (you can pay online at socialistparty.org.uk/donate) and make sure it reaches us by 12 noon on Friday 2 July when the quarter closes.

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.
