May Day Greetings
The Socialist prints May Day greetings from socialists, trade unions,
youth and student organisations, from around the world.
May Day greetings are an opportunity to express international
solidarity with workers and poor people exploited by the worldwide
profit system of capitalism.
This system which enriches a handful of super-rich at the expense and
suffering of billions has been unable to solve basic issues of poverty,
disease and hunger, has failed to give adequate relief and
reconstruction aid to the Tsunami disaster victims and has brought us
unending wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
That's why May Day is important in reaffirming readers' commitment to
international socialism, and it's also why you should place a greetings
advert in the socialist, thereby helping to build the Socialist Party.

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.
