From The Socialist newspaper, 20 June 2012

Support the final sprint to the fighting fund quarter finish line

Ken Douglas, Socialist Party national treasurer

With one week to go, Socialist Party members are going all out to ensure that we reach the target of 25,000 by 29 June.

Some are even going that extra mile - or more: Steve Score and Drew Walton from Leicester Socialist Party both went an extra 13 miles as they ran in the Sheffield half-marathon!

Steve raised over 180 for the fighting fund in sponsorship and Drew raised 15 and sold 13 copies of the Socialist by running with a collecting bucket. Flushed with success, Steve is planning to run in the Leicester half-marathon in October while Drew is upgrading to the full marathon.

The Socialist Party depends on the support of ordinary people for its funding. This is because we fight for the interests of working class people, and not for the interests of big business.

This is unlike the Tory leaders Hunt, Cameron and Osborne, and New Labour's Blair and Brown before them, who were shown by the Leveson inquiry to have fallen over themselves to do Rupert Murdoch's bidding.

Murdoch's newspapers attack public and private sector workers and relentlessly advocate austerity for us, but not for FTSE 100 chief executives who enjoyed a 10% pay increase. A quarter of these chief execs had a 41% pay rise!

Can you make a donation - via our website www.socialistparty.org.uk/donate or by telephoning 020 8988 8777 - to help raise the 5,000 needed to reach our target for the quarter? Every donation, no matter how big or small, will help us on our way.
