Fund the fight for socialism
We ask all our members and supporters and participants at Socialism 2010 to donate to our financial appeal. The Socialist Party has no rich backers - we depend on your donations. Your support is vital so we can continue our essential work.
Socialist Party members are helping to build ant-cuts unions and have been central to the demonstrations and protests that have already taken place - including the NSSN lobby of the TUC and the 23 October demos in London, Cardiff and Bristol.
Our members in the PCS civil servants union have been instrumental in ensuring that the PCS executive has issued a call to the other public-sector unions to back a national demonstration in 2010.
We are part of the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC), along with members of the RMT rail union and other public sector trade unions, to build a working class electoral alternative to the Tories, Lib Dems and Labour.
The only way out of the nightmare future that capitalism holds out for us - of economic crisis, wars and climate change - is a socialist alternative. The Socialist Party has consistently defended and developed the ideas of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Trotsky and is part of the Committee for a Workers' International, which is organised in over 40 countries on every continent.

Coronavirus crisis - Finance appeal
The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.
The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.
The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.
- The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
- Our 'fighting coronavirus workers' charter', outlines a programme to combat the virus and protect workers' living conditions.
- When the health crisis subsides, we must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our special coronavirus appeal.
