Election appeal - don't delay!
Now is the time to pay any remaining pledges into the Socialist Party Election Appeal!
£8,030 has been paid in so far, and we have almost £7,000 to go. The appeal is to help pay for the TUSC challenge in the council and mayoral elections, where Socialist Party members and other TUSC candidates won over 67,000 votes for a socialist alternative to austerity.
The remainder will go to help pay for the No2EU election campaign, providing a trade union and workers' alternative to Ukip, and for the courageous challenge launched in South Africa by the Workers' And Socialist Party.

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 click here to donate to our special coronavirus appeal.
