Your newspaper fights with you: help fund it with May Day greetings

May Day Greetings 2017

James Ivens, May Day greetings campaign organiser

The Socialist is the newspaper that stands with you in your fight. May Day greetings help fund it. Help us get them in.

The Tories are lifeless but still standing, like a tree struck by lightning. They could go on standing until pushed down.

And that will be only the start of the struggle with big business and the billionaires. Their tentacles are deep in parts of Labour still.

So to win we need ideas, strategy and solidarity. That's what the Socialist does.

Last year you set a standard: the most money pledged to the paper in over a decade. In fact, financial support for the Socialist on International Workers' Day has more than tripled since 2006. But there is much still to do.

At work, ask your colleagues about sending a group greeting to the Socialist. We have a sign-up sheet you can use.

In your union, propose a motion to send greetings if you can. We have a model motion and special leaflet.

At your school or university, talk to other students about sending a greeting. We will place a student greeting for a whip-round.

In your community campaigns, too, you can move to send greetings or collect names and donations from supporters.

If you're a member of the Socialist Party, your region will have a target to beat. Some trade union groups have targets too. Talk to your organisers about what groups you think might be willing to send greetings, and how you can help.

Fifty years ago, a heroic general strike put the working class in command of events in France in the month of May. Capitalism all but fell.

The Socialist believes coordinated workers' action has that same power today. Help us make it happen.
