From The Socialist newspaper, 16 September 2015

'Collectathon': Sell the Socialist; Donate to the Socialist Party!

Ian Pattison , the Socialist campaign organiser

The Socialist Party, along with our weekly newspaper, the Socialist, has been present at almost all of the 100 rallies (and overflow meetings too) that Jeremy Corbyn spoke to in the run-up to his landslide victory.

Crowds thronged to hear an alternative, snapping up Socialist Party leaflets and eagerly buying copies of the Socialist.

Since Jeremy Corbyn announced his candidacy, the Socialist has carried articles in every issue about his victorious campaign. These include reports, tweets, photos and comment from our members and supporters.

This week's edition of the Socialist includes pages of analysis setting out what we can do to support Jeremy in his battle against the right wing. Throughout the summer the right-wing media used the Socialist Party and the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition to try to attack Jeremy's campaign.

Unlike the Socialist newspaper, the establishment press is owned by the rich and powerful 1% and is covered in big business advertising. But despite their best efforts they failed to undermine Jeremy Corbyn's run, each time accelerating his level of support.

The Socialist is unashamedly 100% anti-austerity. We have no rich backers; we are only able to effectively campaign for socialist ideas because of the donations and support of working class people like you.

If you enjoy reading the Socialist, can you take out a subscription? You'll receive the paper delivered to your door every Thursday, and we'll be able to clearly plan our finances -

Royal Mail has been privatised and that means postage costs have increased. We're raising the price of a subscription slightly to 4.50 a month (just 6.50 with the Socialism Today magazine) so we can still guarantee a weekly 16-page, full colour socialist newspaper.

Fighting Fund

Every quarter Socialist Party members raise 25,000 for our fighting fund. We have some way to go to reach our July-September target. We're having a Collectathon fortnight from 18 September to Friday 2 October to help us reach that target. What can you do to help?

Many Socialist Party members will be busy helping Socialist Students when students return during these weeks. If that's the case, what two weeks can your Socialist Party branch set aside to raise the money?

Don't wait until then, the Socialist has a freshers' offer - students can get a copy of our latest newspaper along with the Socialist Students magazine, Megaphone, for just 2. Many students buoyed by the Corbyn surge will be happy to donate.

You can help straightaway by making a regular or one-off donation yourself -
