Ian Pattison, Socialist Party national subs organiser

We're asking members to increase their subs to the Socialist Party. We need the resources to enable us to reach as wide an audience as possible in the developing political crisis. The Tories are at the heart of this crisis and there could be a general election at any time.

Unlike the Tories, we have no rich backers. But our members make such tremendous sacrifices, so much so that the Socialist Party's membership subs are around two-thirds of those of the oldest capitalist party in the world!

Compare the clarity in the Socialist on the key issues facing working-class people to the fog generated by the capitalist politicians over Brexit. We have a clear programme that shows how to fight the cuts and end austerity.

The Tories, who represent big business and the super-rich, got 13 million in donations from just 64 wealthy individuals in 2017. We can't match that. But our members and supporters raised almost 290,000 in 2018 for the Fighting Fund and Building Fund, in addition to the regular subs, to help us in our search for a new national headquarters.

Our members have been hit hard by Tory austerity but understand the vital part that their support plays in our fight for socialism. One member who is a rail worker has already agreed to increase their subs by over 100 a month. Another member who is unemployed has quadrupled the amount they give to the party.

Of course, the fight for socialism is necessarily international, and a portion of every member's subs also goes to support the pioneering work of our socialist international - the Committee for a Workers' International (CWI) - organising in over 45 countries.

You don't have to be a member of the Socialist Party to take part in this campaign to boost our finances. You can make a regular donation at

Every extra pound goes towards the fight for the socialist transformation of society - to harness the world's wealth to meet the needs of the 99% and solve the big problems facing humanity, such as global warming.

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.
