Ken Douglas, Socialist Party national treasurer

We are appealing to all readers of the Socialist for a donation to help us with the costs of producing our election leaflets, posters and other material.

Socialist Party members are out campaigning in support of Jeremy Corbyn's key demands: including the renationalisation of the railways and Royal Mail, more money for the NHS and the abolition of tuition fees and zero-hour contracts.

Blairites

In Stoke, Labour Party members commented on how good our leaflets were and took them to give out to friends. Some even said that we're doing a better job at promoting Corbyn's policies than the Labour Party!

Of course that's not news to us. We know that the majority of right-wing Blairite MPs, who also control the party machine, would rather Corbyn lose this election.

The daily onslaught against him from the capitalist establishment, from Labour grandees like Mandelson and Blair, underlines the importance of us campaigning on the streets, with rallies and protests, and with material that can reach workers and young people to convince them that we can kick the Tories out and end austerity.

Finance is vital to ensure our ideas reach as wide an audience as possible and this election is a great opportunity to build support for socialist ideas and show how a socialist programme to gain control over the economy and the wealth that is produced could change our lives.

We have spent over 5,000 so far on leaflets, posters and a four-page manifesto that shows both what's necessary to achieve Corbyn's programme and the need to take it much further.

We are also spending money on equipment to produce weekly Facebook broadcasts.

Whatever the result on 8 June we will continue to do what is necessary to help build a movement that can achieve that transformation.

We haven't got the Tories' millionaire backers and press barons and we have no rich funders. We depend solely on support and donations from ordinary people.

Can you help us? You can donate via our website www.socialistparty.org.uk/donate or telephone 020 8988 8777
