With public campaigning back in full swing - now is the time to raise fighting fund

With the gradual easing of the Covid restrictions, more and more Socialist Party branches are able to hold campaign stalls and are getting a good response. Socialist Party members in Manchester report that they have started their campaign stalls again after Manchester's "permanent" lockdown. While they report it is still much quieter than usual, they have nethertheless managed to raise 26.85 in the first week and 20.07 in the second week. In Staines, 25 fighting fund was raised at their Saturday campaign stall. Socialist Party members in east London raised 30 on the 'Stop the evictions, drop the debts' housing demo. These are just a few of the examples we've had in the last week.

Looking at different ways to raise fighting fund, Southampton Socialist Party has raised 30 from 'Save our NHS' badges.

Are you paying - and asking for - the solidarity price for the Socialist? Our members report that we have received a lot of donations from people this way. Every Socialist Party branch should make sure they have a card reader on all their campaigning activity. Many of the donations we received on the Kill the Bill demos last Saturday were through card readers. Make sure your branch doesn't miss out!

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.
