The Black Lives Matter protests gather young people looking for far-reaching solutions to the problems they face, and donations to the Socialist Party from these protests include 33 raised during the Port Talbot protest, 50 in Leeds, and in London, 154.26 in Hackney, 40 North London and 10 from a Waltham Forest campaign stall.

Susanne sent us 30 with the message: "I would like to donate to making more posters".

That's precisely why we appeal for money - without it we could not put out socialist ideas on these protests, with the weekly production of posters, leaflets, newspapers and placards.

Donations, large and small, are very welcome. During this period of lockdown our local branch Zoom meetings are hugely appreciated by members and those interested in joining our party, and we always appeal for - and receive - many donations from these meetings.

These include Liz, who gave 2, Joe and Julie gave 3 each, Oliver 5 and special thanks go to John Hoare, who donated 50.

Our special coronavirus appeal was launched to ensure the Socialist Party can keep campaigning despite the lockdown. The appeal has helped our fighting fund to reach 45,505 so far, which is a marvellous total as we approach the half way mark for this campaign.

The special appeal has now received 515 payments, and it is clear that many more members and supporters will donate to it when they are asked. We have recently received several 100 donations, including from John Dolan for whom 100 is the equivalent of a day's pay.

Finally, Socialist Party members in the Unison public sector union held a Zoom 'not the conference fringe meeting' at the time that conference was due to take place (had it not been cancelled by the union leadership).

Donations from this meeting pledged over 585, with special mention to Paul Couchman who paid 100.

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.
