Election appeal 2014 - £4,278 raised so far
The Socialist Party is appealing for £15,000 to help finance our election campaigns for the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) in the council and mayoral elections and No2EU in the European elections.
A proportion of the appeal is also going to support the campaign of the Workers and Socialist Party (WASP) in the general election in South Africa.
We are continuing to get a great response from our readers. Thanks this week to: Steve McDonnell £50; Mr C D Cooke £250; Moira O'Driscoll £100; Gary Kandinsky £10; Rob Williams £100; Phil Snider £100; members in Carlisle £100; £200 collected at the funeral of Pat James (obituary issue 806); Roger Ingham £50; members in Bristol south £100, Gloucester £60 and Plymouth £20; Pete McNally £200.
We need to try and reach our target in the next two weeks but if you can't pay immediately can you pledge an amount to be redeemed by the end of May?
You can donate via the 'Election appeal' button on our website www.socialistparty.org.uk or telephone 020 8988 8777. Please make cheques payable to the Socialist Party and send to: Election appeal, PO Box 24697, London E11 1YD.

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.
