The coronavirus is triggering a serious capitalist crisis. Millions of people are worrying about the prospects for their health, jobs and security.

It is more important than ever that the Socialist reaches as many workers and young people as possible.

In our pages you can read about workers fighting back, including - in Britain and internationally - those taking strike action to demand proper health and safety measures to combat the virus.

Our workers' charter for the coronavirus outlines a fighting programme for the current situation.

However, the developing crisis also affects the production of the Socialist and other Socialist Party literature.

Paper prices have already jumped up twice in a week! Please donate what you can to maximise how far our socialist ideas can reach in the coming turbulent weeks.

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.
