Ken Douglas, Socialist Party national treasurer

Socialist Party members throughout England and Wales are out campaigning in support of Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) candidates standing in local and mayoral elections.

We are appealing to all readers and supporters of the Socialist to make a donation to help support those candidates.

Although the majority of councillors are not standing for re-election this year, we believe it is still vital that there is an electoral challenge to the Tories' cuts, which amount to a demolition of local authority services. Jeremy Corbyn has said that he is opposed to austerity but Labour councillors should be organising now to fight these cuts instead of meekly carrying them out.

We say that these cuts can be fought and defeated. Labour councillors should refuse to pass on the cuts and instead launch a campaign in defence of jobs and services, which is what all TUSC candidates pledge to do. Far from there being no money for services, the NHS, housing and jobs, there is plenty.

The richest thousand people in Britain have doubled their wealth since the financial crisis in 2008. A recent Oxfam report highlighted the massive profits being made by the rate-rigging banks which they are salting away in off-shore tax havens, while we are still paying for the economic crisis caused by the greed of those same bankers.

Mersey metro-mayor

But to make our voice heard we need your help!

We depend solely on the support of ordinary people - the Socialist Party has no rich backers. Standing in the Merseyside metro-mayor election for instance costs 5,000 for the deposit and 3,000 for the booklet which goes to every household, costs which the Socialist Party, as part of TUSC, has to make a contribution to. Then there are the leaflets and other material that we are producing.

Please help us build support for the fightback against austerity and for a socialist alternative. Can you donate 5, 10, 50 or 100 or more? We can guarantee that every penny will be used in the fight for socialism.

Socialist Party members beat last year's record for the amount of fighting fund raised in the January to March quarter of the year.
