Selling the Socialist

Coventry

Just some of the events where the Socialist newspaper was sold in the past week¦

Coventry

In two hours, 140 people signed the Socialist Party petition to scrap hospital parking charges - more than one person signing every minute. Thanks to residents, NHS workers and first-year healthcare students who signed on 26 September.

Every week it is clearer that the vast majority of ordinary people in Coventry want an NHS that is truly free to use and publicly owned, with the private businesses that make obscene profits from car parks and PFI booted out of the health service.

Adam Harmsworth

Derby

On 19 September, one satisfied customer sat reading the Socialist paper he had just bought.

A National Education Union (NEU) and Labour Party member also bought the paper and gave us his details to find out more about the Socialist Party. He is becoming increasingly disillusioned with Labour.

Someone who had seen the stall a previous week, gave us his details on our website. He said it was great to see a socialist stall. It all goes to show how important the Socialist Party's campaign stalls are.

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.
