Chris Newby, The Socialist campaign organiser

How can we make sure the Socialist newspaper gets into as many hands as possible? Every week the Socialist produces unrivalled coverage of workers' struggles in Britain and around the world.

But the Socialist Party goes further than that. Not only do we put forward a strategy to ensure these struggles can succeed, but we also participate in them too.

The Socialist explains why we need to fight for socialist ideas and how and why we need to change society.

When workers involved in struggle see us on the picket line, at protests and campaigning in the city centres, they are keen to buy our paper.

For example, 82 copies were sold at our campaign stall in Pontypridd against the threat to the Royal Glamorgan A&E (see opposite) and 80 people bought a copy over two stalls in Walthamstow campaigning for council housing and rent controls (see below).

We are asking every member and supporter, what can you do to increase the sales of the Socialist?

One new young member in Brighton is showing the way. He asked for five regular copies of the Socialist every week to sell.

Last week he was selling the Socialist at an Extinction Rebellion meeting, the climate strike and another environment protest at Gatwick airport.

In Leicester, Socialist Party members have established two weekday stalls on top of our regular Saturday campaign stall (see below). One is in an area with a lot of different workplaces.

In Nottingham, you'll now see Socialist sellers outside Queen's Medical centre. In Leeds, you'll see the Socialist newspaper outside the council offices.

At our regular weekly meeting in Swansea, everyone is asked to take two to three papers to try to sell.

One young member in Southampton visited some friends in Cambridge. She took copies of the Socialist with her and sold six.

We want to hear about the response to the Socialist in the Socialist! Please send us short reports of your campaign activity to editors@socialistparty.org.uk.

You don't have to be a member of the Socialist Party to sell the Socialist. Contact us and we can send you some copies to sell.
