Building the Socialist Party


Tolpuddle

Over 130 copies of the Socialist were sold at the 2013 Tolpuddle Martyrs Festival in Dorset when petitioning for the TUC to call a 24-hour general strike against austerity. Several people said they would attend the lobby of the TUC congress in Bournemouth.

Thousands of people attended the two-day festival, which remembers the six farm workers who were arrested and exiled to Australia in 1834 for forming a union.

Northern region Socialist Party members raised £23.49 from selling gingerbread bankers to "eat the rich"! Thanks to Chris from Shirley who donated £10 and Tony G from Leeds, who donated £50 saying "Keep up the good work."

Lincoln

"I really hate the bedroom tax and I want to help your campaign to get rid of it," said one person who donated £10 to Socialist Party campaigners in Lincoln, despite being affected by the bedroom tax himself. 12 copies of the Socialist were sold on the weekday stall with £47 fighting fund raised in total.
