Doing all we can to fund the anti-cuts stand at the ballot box

TUSC leaflets

Socialist Party members and supporters are doing a brilliant job raising fighting fund this quarter. This has been particularly buoyed by the donations we have received to help fund the Socialist Party's campaign as part of the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) in May's local elections.

Our members and supporters in Wales are doing particularly good work, which has seen them smash through their fighting fund target. Recent donations to help stand in the Senedd elections include 200 from Ken Smith and 30 from Evan Vaughan, both from Swansea, as well as 25 from Alex Wedlake in Cardiff West. We've also had a 50 donation from Nasso Christou in North London to help fund the TUSC election campaign. How is your area doing raising funds for the Socialist Party election appeal?

Despite the limits to our campaigning activities, our members are looking at other ways to raise our fighting fund. In London, following a very successful finance organisers meeting, South East London branch organised a quiz night which has so far raised 87. This is one of a number of quiz nights that have been, or are being, organised across England and Wales. We've also had an excellent donation from Clive Walder who has celebrated getting a new job by donating 200.

All our members and supporters are doing everything they can to help us smash through the fighting fund target for this quarter.

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.
