Donate to help us seize every opportunity to fight austerity
Heather Rawling, East Midlands Socialist Party treasurer
Fighting austerity is expensive. Socialist Party members are actively out there on the streets publicising socialist ideas, petitioning for change on campaign stalls, leafleting and selling papers on demonstrations against wars, against hospital closures and council cuts.
We also support workers like the junior doctors on picket lines, campaign in trade unions for action to fight austerity and defend jobs and wages, organise meetings to discuss socialist ideas and support international workers' movements.
We cannot do this without funds. This year we will be mobilising support in the local elections for candidates that will oppose cuts and we will be promoting a socialist alternative in the EU referendum.
Socialism is back on the agenda and we need to be able to seize every opportunity to take our programme to the working class.
We have a proud record of sacrifice and raising funds because we are confident in our ideas. Last year, we smashed our target - it was the best achievement this century! Yet we need to raise £123,000 this year, £30,000 this quarter.
We have a fantastic opportunity to raise fighting fund at this year's national congress on 19-21 March. Delegates will be discussing crucial issues facing our movement. If every branch approaches its supporters and members for a donation to give to the fighting fund appeal then we could confidently reach our target.
The appeal at congress is vital to our work. Has your branch set a target? What is your plan to reach it? We are asking everyone who reads the Socialist and agrees with our ideas to consider how much they could give to support our struggle.
Please make a donation, whether large or small, to help the Socialist Party build a socialist alternative - visit socialistparty.org.uk/donate
