Building the Socialist Party


Plymouth success

28 people attended Plymouth Socialist Party's public meeting on 9 July. Sarah Wrack from the Socialist editorial team spoke alongside local TUSC candidate Ryan Aldred and Sick Of Your Boss campaigner George Fidler. The fighting fund collection raised over £140.

Two donations of £20 each came from newer members - both struggling to make ends meet, but seeing the solution as backing the fight for socialism.

What a contrast to the debacle over Labour Party funding!

Selling the Socialist

Nancy and Martin in Waltham Forest, east London, sold 14 copies of the Socialist one morning to people on their way to work.

One person gave their contact details to find out more about joining the Socialist Party.

They also made sure they asked everyone if they could give the solidarity price of £2, to help raise fighting fund. Four people did so.


Funding the fightback

As well as asking for the solidarity price and organising campaign stalls during the summer, Socialist Party members and branches should think about taking advantage of the sunny weather to raise fighting fund. Can you plan a fundraising barbecue or summer social? Or how about a picnic, football tournament, sponsored run, cycle or swim?


Summer schedule

The current issue of the Socialist is the first of three fortnightly issues:

Issue 774, 18-31 July

Issue 775, 1-14 August

Issue 776, 15-28 August

The weekly schedule will be resumed from issue 777 (29 August-4 September).

The fortnightly schedule allows members of the editorial staff to attend the CWI Summer School and also take some holiday! In the meantime, with workers' struggles, anti-bedroom tax campaigns and other protests against austerity continuing, we recommend you keep a close eye on the Socialist Party website:

www.socialistparty.org.uk

There'll be new marquees and new cooking equipment. As before there will be a crèche for young children during discussions and a Red Flag Club for older children.

Just bring yourself, your family and friends; a tent, sleeping bag, plate, cup, bowl, knife, fork and spoon.
