Elections 3 May
Donate to fund a socialist alternative
The Socialist Party is standing this year in local elections and Welsh Assembly elections to provide a socialist alternative to the parties of big business.
Our election campaigns and our day-to-day campaigning work, like defending the NHS, pensions and education, are all funded by donations from our members and supporters.
Socialist Party members who are elected to paid positions to represent people, whether in a trade union or in government, take a worker's wage instead of the inflated salaries that MPs and many trade union leaders live on. We are accountable to working-class people, unlike New Labour, the Tories and the Liberal Democrats who answer to the big business corporations who fund them.
If you agree that a socialist alternative is needed, that privatisation in the NHS must stop, that workers should be paid a living wage, we need your help! Every penny or pound you can donate to our fighting fund will help pay for more leaflets and posters and allow our ideas to reach more people.
