Show solidarity with the struggles of workers internationally and help build the resources of our socialist newspaper.

Subscribe to the socialist!

The socialist 2006 campaign to increase sales of and subscriptions to the Socialist Party's paper was launched at this year's national conference. The campaign has started well as the socialist has now reached a record number of subscriptions.

Bob Severn, the socialist sales organiser

This is thanks to over twenty new subscriptions and direct debits being received within days of the February conference. If this many new subscriptions were taken out every week, the paper would reach the new subscriptions target agreed at conference by the end of this year.

To help achieve this target it is important that all Socialist Party members without a subscription are asked to subscribe. Branch papers organisers should co-ordinate this with the assistance of other active branch members.

Do not forget to ask all new members and potential members to subscribe either. Of course, if you do not have a current subscription to the socialist we ask you to subscribe too!

The socialist is essential reading for all Socialist Party members and supporters so they can keep up to date with our campaigning work as well as our political ideas and socialist analysis.

Taking out a subscription not only means you receive the paper every week, but it also helps build the financial base of the socialist which is vital in developing both the Socialist Party and its paper.

Want to read the socialist every week? To subscribe, click here. Ring 020 8988 8796 to pay by credit card or ask for a Direct Debit form.

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.
