Don't miss May Day greetings deadline!
The deadline for sending May Day greeting messages to the Socialist - 10 April - is approaching fast.
May Day greetings celebrate International Workers' Day while helping to fund the Socialist, the paper that fights all cuts.
International Workers' Day commemorates the first US-wide general strike which took place on 1 May 1886 and the workers who were killed due to the actions of the police.
To help drive through its austerity programme, the government - with the help of the capitalist media - tries to divide us, including by race, by nationality, by gender, by age, between the employed and unemployed.
The Socialist fights for working class and middle class people to unite across Britain and internationally to make the banksters pay for their crisis.
The paper puts forward a socialist alternative based on the needs of the majority, not the profits of a few billionaires.
Your May Day greeting can help show that workers, young people and the unemployed are uniting to fight back, and what issues you are campaigning on.
By doing so you'll help the Socialist continue to report that fightback and put forward a strategy to take the fight against all cuts forward, including the demand for a 24-hour general strike.
