From The Socialist newspaper, 11 April 2018

To produce the Socialist we need a building - help us keep ours!

Scott Jones, the Socialist editorial team

Computers, phones, desks, meeting table, printers, distribution equipment, archives and a space for editors to work together. Without any of these there would be no Socialist newspaper each week - in print or online. To produce the paper its vital that we have the offices and work space at our national headquarters in London which is under threat.

When we come into work on a Monday morning we meet to discuss the material going in the upcoming issue. We then commission articles written by workers and campaigners themselves before editing and laying out those articles before sending the finished issue to our printers on Tuesday evening.

When the thousands of printed papers are delivered on Wednesday morning they arrive early at our nearby workshop where we package the papers to be delivered to our subscribers and sellers around the country and further afield. At the same time other editors are uploading the content of the paper to our website and processing new subscribers.

Thursday and Friday are then spent having further meetings, discussions and starting the commissioning, editing and layout out of the next issue, beginning the process again.

We wouldn't be able to do any of this without having the space, time and resources the national headquarters gives to produce a newspaper each week, written, read and sold by workers, to workers.

Help us keep it that way. Please donate to the building fund.
