On the demonstrations and protests against Israeli state attacks on the Palestinians, Socialist Party members received a tremendous response to our message: 'End the occupation - for a Palestinian socialist intifada'.

I was on the mass demonstration in London, and it was clear that people were keen to discuss what we had to say. Leaflets were snatched out of our hands.

All our placards were taken well before the demo marched off. Lots of protesters made a donation for one.

Protesters recognised the need to donate to make sure we had the resources to produce all our material. Over 900 fighting fund was raised on the London demonstration, with someone donating a 50 note.

On protests in other towns and cities, our Socialist Party stalls all received good donations to help fund our socialist message - 151 in Coventry, 26 in Northampton, 39 in Birmingham, 37 in Hull, 33 in Sheffield, 54 in Newcastle and 23 in Lichfield.

It is clear people want to hear our socialist message. Don't let up on your fundraising to make sure we have the resources to get our message out as widely as possible.

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.
