Christmas 2004 Appeal Letter

Dear supporter,

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

Big success

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 Fayres for years.

We stood candidates in the local council elections, organised rallies to celebrate 40 years of our paper the Socialist, participated in anti-war protests and organised our successful Socialism 2004 weekend. Whether on national demos or local activities, we are the only party putting forward a socialist alternative which is attracting youth 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.

No rich backers

In order to continue this work into next year and build on our successes we need more resources. Not surprisingly 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.
