From The Socialist newspaper, 24 October 2012

Help build the voice for the Socialist alternative

Sarah Sachs-Eldridge, Editor, the Socialist

On Tuesday 23 October the Guardian printed three letters complaining that the paper and its sister publication, the Observer, had failed to adequately report on the huge 20 October TUC demo against austerity. We'll never know how many others were received.

The Socialist, the weekly paper of the Socialist Party, with limited space unfortunately cannot provide a full spectrum of news and analysis.

But it prioritises this demo because it was a significant event for working class people in the fight against the horrendous attacks on our living standards.

Regular readers will see that this paper has returned to the usual 12 pages, having produced a 20-page special for the demo and three 16-pagers in the run-up to the demo.

This was to provide more space to report on the mood for a 24-hour strike that is growing among workers, youth, pensioners, the unemployed and everyone hit by the brutal austerity measures.

The response to the temporary increased page-count was fantastic. However, to maintain such a change requires an increase in sales and subscriptions.

Can you help us to build this paper? Can you send reports of the struggles and campaigns you are involved in? If you don't have a subscription can you take one out? Can you encourage others to do so?

The Socialist offers a place to discuss and debate the key questions facing our movement: how can we stop the cuts; how can we have a political voice that represents the 99%; and what is the alternative to the capitalist system of cuts and crisis?

The Socialist provides a place for workers and young people to have a voice and a counterweight to the 'TINA' mantra which insists There Is No Alternative to cuts and privatisation.
