Ken Douglas, Socialist Party national treasurer

Just over 35,000 pounds was donated and pledged at the Socialism 2018 rally on 10 November.

This is a fantastic result which means we are on course to smash the fighting fund target for the whole of 2018 - but only if we maintain our fundraising drive. So we can't stop now!

Socialist Party branches are already making plans for a bumper Christmas Collectathon to make sure we push that total as high as we can. Starting on Saturday 1 December, we are asking all branches to plan extra fundraising stalls, Christmas parties, raffles and more.

The Tories are on the rocks. They could be pushed out with a determined fight - especially if a bold lead is given by Jeremy Corbyn and the trade union leaders.

Despite being massively weakened, the Tories are continuing their attacks on working-class living standards, including destroying council services, undermining the effectiveness of the NHS, and continuing with Universal Credit.

Socialist Party members will be campaigning in the town centres and shopping arcades with our message that the Tories are so weak they can be forced out, and that if we fight the cuts we can win. There is only one 'people's vote' that we need - and that is a general election now.

We have no rich backers. Indeed we are the bitter opponents of the rich - like in Seattle, where Socialist Alternative councillor Kshama Sawant has led a campaign against Amazon and its hundred-billionaire boss, Jeff Bezos.

Our fighting fund is raised from the support of ordinary working-class people. It is crucial to our ability to spread socialist ideas as widely as possible, through the pages of the Socialist, through leaflets and pamphlets, and the campaigning of our members.

Can you assist us in this struggle? Can you make a donation to take us nearer to our goal?
