From The Socialist newspaper, 4 December 2004

Fighting fund Christmas appeal

The Socialist Party is appealing for donations to our funds this Christmas.

As 2004 draws to a close, the continuing brutal occupation of Iraq underlines why we must continue our struggle against this rotten capitalist system and for a socialist future.

Jane James, National treasurer

In Britain, civil service and Jaguar workers are fighting for their jobs. Meanwhile privatisation of our jobs and services continues apace under Blair.

2004 was a big success for our party. Campaigning against low pay and top-up fees, we signed up hundreds to Socialist Students in the most successful Freshers Fairs for years.

We stood candidates in the local council elections and organised rallies to celebrate 40 years of our paper - the socialist. We participated in anti-war protests and organised our successful Socialism 2004 weekend.

Whether on national demos or at the European Social Forum in London, we are the only party putting forward a socialist alternative that is attracting young people to our party.

In the new year, we need to prepare for further action by civil service and other workers against job cuts and attacks on pensions. We will be producing material to participate in the anti-war demo in March and finance is needed to ensure that the Socialist Party is represented at the World Social Forum in Brazil in January.

In order to continue this work into next year and build on our successes, we need more resources. We have no rich backers. Our income comes only from our members, readers of our paper and the thousands of working class people who support our campaigns and struggles.

A donation to the Socialist Party this Christmas would be greatly appreciated whether large or small. We depend on you to finance our campaigning work.
