From The Socialist newspaper, 17 October 2012

Fight back against austerity - support the Socialist Party

Can you make a donation to support the work of the Socialist Party and help maintain a socialist paper that has consistently been an independent voice for the working class?

The Socialist Party is at the heart of the resistance to austerity. Our members are involved in fighting the cuts in community campaigns throughout England and Wales, in the trade unions and in elections, as part of the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition. You can read reports of these struggles in the pages of this paper.

Socialist Party members are currently standing in elections in Manchester and in Bristol. Our message is that these cuts can be fought and defeated and, far from there being no money for services, the NHS, housing and jobs, there is plenty!

We explain that the 750 billion in the coffers of the big corporations and the banks could pay off the 'deficit' and fund a massive programme of building houses, schools and hospitals. 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. Our placards, banners and leaflets for the 20 October demo have cost thousands of pounds.

We think this expenditure is well worth it in order to build support for socialist ideas and the fightback against austerity.

But we need your support - can you donate 5, 10, 50 or 100 or more? We can guarantee that every penny will be used in the fight for socialism.

The three main capitalist parties have no answers - they point to decades of cuts for us while the super-rich get even richer.

We say that there is an alternative, a socialist alternative, where the enormous wealth in the world is democratically owned and controlled by the majority, by the '99%', and is used to build a society based on meeting the needs of everyone and creating a sustainable future.

If you agree with us, support us with a donation!

Ken Douglas, Socialist Party national treasurer
