Message to our readers and contributors
To all our readers and contributors,
The Socialist thanks our readers and subscribers for your support during 2013. Without your continued financial support it would be difficult to maintain the weekly paper.
We are very grateful for the marvellous material that has been sent in by our 'citizen journalists' from their experience of life in 'Austerity Britain'.
Over the year we have been moved by depictions of the reality for working class people, angered by the exposÚs of the lies, greed and hypocrisy of those who defend crisis-ridden capitalism, heard otherwise forgotten working class history - and been proud to report the news of the struggle to resist the cuts and capitalism.
Trade unionists, anti-cuts activists, and young people involved in struggle have all contributed. Socialist Party members and those we work with in campaigns have made their voices heard in the pages of the Socialist.
We look forward to continuing to fight against austerity together in 2014 - standing no-cuts candidates in the 2014 May council elections with the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition, campaigning for a 24-hour general strike with the National Shop Stewards Network and others in the trade unions to unite our struggles and show the strength of the working class in action, and standing firmly for internationalism and socialism.
