"It's not much, but I hope this helps" wrote F Whittam, sending us £10. It does! It's these small amounts that have helped the Socialist Party break records for our Fighting Fund.

Looking back over the last 20 years, our yearly totals have doubled. And 2020 has the potential to be another record year.

James from Manchester, sending a £20 donation, indicated how events are leading people to send us money: "In solidarity.

"Former Socialist Party member and now former Labour/Momentum member (quit over Long-Bailey debacle)."

£850 was pledged at a Socialist Party Wales public meeting on the need for a new workers' party, including a day's income from Kate and Geoff Jones of £100.

Our members continue to make sacrifices. A further £100 to our coronavirus appeal from Bill and Marilyn in Nottingham, both retired, on top of an earlier £50. £100 also came from Katrine Williams and £100 from Jon Dale.

Our coronavirus appeal at the end of our website articles brought anonymous donations of £2, two donations of £10, and one of £50.

Many donated £2 or more after Zoom meetings - having saved the cost of bus fare, room hire, and maybe a few beers after the meeting.

"Just to help your work in a small way" writes Richard Stone, donating £10 and seeking to pay regular amounts. You can do this too at socialistparty.org.uk/finance.

Marin Tomuta in Stanton, California donated £50. International donations welcome!

Finally Josh Asker sent in £6: "Donation for taking a friend's cat to the vet." We don't mind how you raise those extra pounds, they are all welcome.

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.
  • 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 Fighting Fund.
