From The Socialist newspaper, 13 April 2016

Sales of the Socialist on the rise, read all about it!

We had a very successful sales campaign of the Socialist in the first three months of 2015 - selling 2,000 more than in the previous quarter. That's on top of thousands that landed on door mats via subscription.

The main capitalist papers have jumped to expose tax avoidance in the Panama Papers. Now they're trying to calm working class anger and shore up David Cameron. But fewer and fewer people trust the establishment and their mouthpieces in the media.

An extra 700 copies were snapped up in Yorkshire. Sellers of the Socialist sold 400 copies in one month campaigning against steel closures in Scunthorpe.

On 9 April, 200 people bought the Socialist across five Welsh towns while demanding nationalisation of the steel industry. Sales have almost tripled in Wales.

The Socialist has been boosted by our working class writers. A front page on 10 an hour was written by a young, low-paid fast food worker. Our 'solidarity with the junior doctors' article was written by a medical student. Workers' action for nationalisation was put forward in an interview with a redundant Rotherham steelworker. And this week we feature the Panama Papers scandal. Not in the words of Cameron and other tax-dodgers, but working class people who have been ripped off and are ready to fight back.

The Southern region more than doubled sales by going hell for leather on sales weeks of action twice this year. In the West Midlands, a Corbynista Labour Party member took out a subscription when she re-joined Labour six months ago. When Labour cuts councillors came knocking for nominations, she refused, instead nominating the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) after reading what we said.

Why not take out a direct debit subscription? And take a few extra papers to try and sell to friends, family & workmates?
