From The Socialist newspaper, 13 June 2018

Angry at the injustices of capitalism? Enthused to fight the cuts? Then help us sell the Socialist

Nick Chaffey, secretary, Southern region Socialist Party

For approaching 1,000 issues over 21 years, the Socialist has provided the most consistent analysis of events in Britain and internationally, reporting on the many struggles of workers and young people. We have reached huge numbers of people, angry at the injustices of the capitalist world and won them towards a socialist view by selling them a copy of the Socialist.

Many have joined us and now contribute to producing the Socialist. Everyone who has done that should be proud of that achievement.

What the Socialist needs to ensure it continues to play that role is sellers. More sellers who are confident in socialist ideas and determined to reach new readers keen to hear our views.

That is our chief plan for the 1000th issue sales week in Southampton and across the Southern region. We to encourage every member to be part of their branch team and be active selling the Socialist.

To build our team of regular sellers who organise our stalls on Saturdays across the city and our regular stalls at the local hospital. To help take the #StopTrump message to schools and colleges. To build solidarity with PCS civil service union members starting their strike ballot to smash the Tories' pay freeze.

No one is born a Socialist seller, over time everyone grows in confidence, through experience and success. What helps to get new sellers started is support and encouragement from those who are more established at it.

Over 20 members, many for the first time, took part in Southampton meetings and campaign activity during the recent local election campaign. They were enthused by our stand in fighting cuts.

Now we want them to take part in our 1000th issue campaign week and become regular sellers. This will strengthen support for the ideas of the Socialist Party and the Socialist.

Our plans need to make sure we organise to bring a new seller out on every activity and turn our extra sales into regular sales. That can ensure this campaign week marks a sustained development in the sales and influence of the Socialist.
