Hull: picking up the Socialist at a safe distance

I'm trying this (picture right) to distribute the Socialist, which relies on people's honesty. I had a couple of thumbs up and eight papers have been taken. I have faith in people.

Of course you don't all have to come round ours to pick up the Socialist. To subscribe, visit socialistparty.org.uk/subscribe

Leeds: readers impressed with Socialist coverage

I posted a copy of the Socialist to someone who normally buys it off me once a month. He was so impressed with our coverage on Covid-19 and its effect on the trade union movement he texted me and asked to be sent a copy of the Socialist every week for the next two months.

At our Unite Community meeting - held online over Zoom - one of our members reported an alternative 'Thursday night clap for NHS'. Add an additional chant: "Test, test, test... PPE... keep key workers virus free!"

East London: virtual race turns into real fighting fund

East London Socialist Party organised a 'virtual Grand National' horse racing sweepstake for the party's fighting fund on 4 April - to mitigate the negative effects of the coronavirus lockdown on our public fundraising activities.

People paid online and the sweepstake raised 65 for the fighting fund along with a 15 prize - and no horses were injured!

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.

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 click here to donate to our Fighting Fund.

Please donate here.

All payments are made through a secure server.
