Selling the Socialist

Hereford

I was very anxious about hitting the streets with the first campaign for the Socialist Party in Hereford. There is not a socialist base here.

But meeting Sean from Worcester Socialist Party and carrying the kit to where we set up was quite liberating.

We set up in the centre of High Town, outside an empty shop. Our table was adorned with posters and copies of the Socialist.

A fighting fund pot was set out on top. We put posters on the windows behind us, and set to shouting about the NHS pay 'rise' and against the privatisation of the NHS.

It was not long before we had our first signatures and discussions. 22 Socialist papers and £81.65 for the fighting fund on top later, and, more importantly, four people interested in the Socialist Party.

We heard about another campaign at Westfields School in Leominster. It is being centralised to Hereford, with no apparent thought given to parents and pupils who have extra needs. We will be there. We are the only party visibly standing up against Tory cuts. I look forward to the next one, and may there be many more.

We were back out building our campaign against parking charges. The anger at the parking charges couldn't be clearer than when a member of the public came up unprompted and helped us hand out leaflets and encouraged others to sign! One man told us plainly: "I voted Labour until now, but never again. I'll vote socialist in future."

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.

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.
