From The Socialist newspaper, 9 October 2013

Build the fightback - sell the Socialist!

Angry about an autumn of austerity?

Sarah Wrack, The Socialist sales organiser

Sales and subscriptions of the Socialist reached 63% of the target for the July to September quarter.

On 29 September hundreds of copies of the Socialist were sold on the national NHS demonstration in Manchester, including many on coaches and trains from around the country.

Sellers of the Socialist explained to protesters that the Socialist puts forward a clear strategy that includes workers' action as the best way to defend our health service.

The four-page NHS campaign pull-out helped to show the different campaigns that Socialist Party members are involved in, the tactics we advocate and why we think a socialist alternative is ultimately necessary to ensure free and decent healthcare for all.

As we move into an autumn that looks likely to include many more protests, demonstrations and strikes, the Socialist has an important role to play in pointing to the need to link up the struggles and fight for a 24-hour general strike against austerity.

To ensure we maximise the opportunities to do this, every branch should have regular sales at workplaces - especially those where action is planned - and sellers of the Socialist should try to sell to their workmates.

Every branch should make a detailed plan on how they will reach and surpass the target this quarter.

Keep the Socialist updated on plans and experiences with the sales and subscriptions campaign - editors@socialistparty.org.uk
