May Day greetings in the Socialist

Celebrate the struggles of workers and the oppressed this May Day by placing a greeting in the Socialist.

Fifty years ago this May, 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.

We have been instrumental in putting forward a political and industrial strategy to beat the bosses and their system of crisis, inequality and war. Help us build the movement which can achieve it. Place a May Day greeting using the form on this page, to be published in the Socialist issue 992 (26 April to 2 May 2018).

Price guide

20% discount if you pay by 5pm on Friday 30 March 2018 (discounted prices in brackets)

Final deadline: 5pm on Wednesday 11 April 2018

Student groups: we will place a greeting for a whip-round if you cannot get official funding.

Prices are negotiable for non-student groups if needed.

Questions? Please email James Ivens:
