US presidential election

The result of the US presidential election, to be held on Tuesday 3 November, will not be known until sometime on Wednesday 4 November here in the UK at the earliest, and after issue 1108 of the Socialist has been printed.

The result could be further delayed by counting of the unprecedented number of postal ballots before the tally of electoral college votes - which constitutionally determines which candidate wins rather than the total popular vote - is declared. Therefore, readers should refer to our website - socialistparty.org.uk - for an initial assessment of the outcome, including comment from our co-thinkers in the US, the Independent Socialist Group.

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 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.
  • 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.
