Despite the restrictions placed on our campaigning activity, Socialist Party members and supporters have responded to the challenge by doing what they can to raise much needed fighting fund. The election appeal will be a significant part of what we raise this quarter, but our members are planning lots of different ways to help us smash the fighting fund target.

Stoke branch are writing up a list of all those who have shown an interest in the Socialist Party, but have not yet joined, to send them an appeal letter asking for a donation. While we can't visit car boot sales, many members are looking to sell items on eBay or, like Birmingham North branch, on Facebook Marketplace.

Over the course of the last year, many areas have held successful quiz nights. More are being planned, as well as other types of online events such as the gaming night being planned by Coventry branch and a poetry reading event by members in Brighton.

These are just a few of the many plans we have heard about. We urge every member and supporter to do what they can to help us break through our fighting fund target, and make sure we have the resources to help fund the Socialist Party's election campaign as part of the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition. Donate to help us produce the leaflets, posters and all the other campaigning material that is urgently needed to build the working-class fightback.

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.
