From The Socialist newspaper, 26 November 2014

Are you a socialist?

Do you...

...stand for a minimum wage of 10 an hour now?

...agree with kicking private profit out of our NHS?

...want rent control and decent council housing?

...feel sick as the wealth of the super-rich 1% piles up while the world's 99% suffer poverty wages, joblessness and underemployment, are denied a decent education, and face death from war and curable and preventable diseases?

...agree that working class people, when organised, could run things better than big business and its politicians?

Then you're a socialist!

You need to join the Socialist Party!

Sarah Sachs-Eldridge, Socialist Party national organiser

We need you to help with our latest campaign. We have set ourselves the goal of 100 new members by the end of 2014. If you're not a member of the Socialist Party, please consider joining now.

If you're already a member, we need your help too. You could start by asking all those people you know - at work, in your trade union, on your street, in your family - if they agree with us.

Do they want to join the socialists too?


In the last week alone, more than 20 people took that step. They went from being angry individuals to members of an organisation that unites working class people, young people and all who stand for an alternative to the misery of capitalism.

Socialists are not simply aware of the gross inequality and injustices visited on the lives of millions of people. We propose an alternative way of running society in the interests of the overwhelming majority, and a strategy to change the world - based on the enormous potential strength of the working class.

We ask members to be as active as they can, promoting socialist ideas in their workplaces, trade unions, colleges and communities.


Members also pay a financial contribution to help build our party. Big business pours money into the parties that do its bidding; we get our financial backing from the people we fight for and struggle alongside - the working class.

There is a role for everyone in the Socialist Party. Taking on an organising position in your local branch, spreading socialist ideas, participating in campaigns, to asking the questions at meetings that help everyone understand things better.

If you agree we need to change the world, joining the Socialist Party is the best thing you can do!

Get in touch today!

We'll arrange a meeting with one of our members to get you signed up.

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.
