Fund us to fight for socialism

Socialist Party branches are doing campaign stalls and other activity to help us hit our quarterly fighting fund target of £25,000. We are currently on 20%. Can you help either by going to one of the Socialist Party stalls near you to raise socialist ideas and fighting fund, or making a donation yourself?
Alongside this, the Socialist Party has launched a subs campaign to increase the regular financial contributions of our members. The membership subs of every member is the bedrock of our party. It is the stable steady income that ensures that we have the resources needed to fight for a socialist transformation of society.
In the many pages of our paper, the Socialist, you will see the campaigns, strikes and workers' struggle that we are involved in. We are putting resources into the Erdington by-election to fight for the working-class political representation that is urgently needed (see pages 8, 9 and 11).
If you are already a member, can you increase your monthly subs by a small amount to help reach our subs target? If you are not a member, but agree with us, what are you waiting for? Join the Socialist Party today.

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.
